Music and lyrics by Adam Gwon
April 9 - 19, 2015
The first production will be a regional premiere of the new musical, Ordinary Days with music and lyrics by Adam Gwon. Ordinary Days is presented through special arrangement with R & H Theatricals: www.rnh.com.
Ordinary Days tells the story of four young New Yorkers whose lives intersect as they search for fulfillment, happiness, love and cabs. Through a score of vibrant and memorable songs, their experiences ring startlingly true to life. Ordinary Days is an original musical for anyone who’s ever struggled to appreciate the simple things in a complex place. With equal doses of humor and poignancy, it celebrates how 8.3 million individual stories combine in unexpected ways to make any city a unique and extraordinary home.
The critics call Ordinary Days…
"A QUIETLY AFFECTING SHOW... Ordinary Days introduces a promising newcomer to our talent-hungry musical theater. Mr. Gwon writes crisp, fluid and funny lyrics that reflect the racing minds of four New Yorkers on a nervous search for their immediate futures. Ordinary Days...captures with stinging clarity that uneasy moment in youth when doubts begin to cloud hopes for a future of unlimited possibility." --Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
"FULL OF IDIOSYNCRATIC CHARM... A heartfelt and clever look at life in modern-day New York." (Critic's Pick) --Adam Feldman, Time Out New York
"ARRESTINGLY POETIC... A small-scale pleasure. Those who want to spot talented up-and-comers will want to check out Adam Gwon." (Critic's Choice) --Charles McNulty, LA Times
