Bobby is successful, single, and turning thirty-five: and his life still revolves around the needs of his many crazy married friends. As his landmark birthday approaches, he’s fielding calls from them as well as from three very different girlfriends – and everyone in his life is asking him why he hasn’t found someone nice and settled down. In this hilarious and often touching meditation on all of life’s “company” – friendships, love affairs, and marriages good and bad – we join Bobby in his search for the answer.
A New Brain
A musical based on the actual life experience of composer William Finn. This engaging and fast-paced musical by the author of Falsettos and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee recounts the life-changing experience of fictional composer, Gordon Schwinn. Barely enduring a frustrating job working on a children's TV show, Gordon suffers a sudden life-threatening brain disorder which sends him into emergency surgery. The tumultuous, comical and surreal ordeal that engulfs Gordon and those closest to him — his mother, partner and publicist — teaches everyone, especially Gordon, something profound about what is truly important in life, and in love.
