Music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown
This contemporary song cycle weaves characters and history together, illuminating the timelessness of self-discovery. The first musical from Tony Award winner Jason Robert Brown (Bridges of Madison County, Parade), this moving collection of powerful songs examines life, love, and the choices that we make. Brown transports the audience from the deck of a 1492 Spanish sailing ship to a ledge 57 stories above Fifth Avenue to meet a startling array of characters that range from a young man who has determined that basketball is his ticket out of the ghetto to a woman whose dream of marrying rich nabs her the man of her dreams and a soulless marriage. This is Footlite’s annual cabaret production.
