Assistant Professor of Theatre and “Ordinary Days” Director Meriah Sage said the show “tells the story of four young New Yorkers whose lives intersect as they search for fulfillment, happiness, and love. Through a score of vibrant and memorable songs, their experiences ring startlingly true to life.” It 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 New York City such a unique and extraordinary home.
Music and lyrics by Adam Gwon, “Ordinary Days” includes 21 songs which tell the story of these two men and two women making simple connections. This production is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals.
PLEASE NOTE: This show is recommended for audience members over 13 years of age for brief moments of strong language and references to death.
