A VERY SPECIAL EVENT! Just two New Line actors, Jeffrey Wright and Chris Kernan, and artistic director Scott Miller on keyboard, in one of the most intimate evenings of musical theatre in the company’s 30 year history, telling a story all about telling stories. The Story Of My Life follows the friendship of Alvin and Thomas, two lifelong friends from a small town who are reunited after Alvin’s mysterious death. Thomas struggles to write Alvin’s eulogy, so Alvin shows up to help the two of them take an amazing journey back through the story of their friendship, as Alvin searches through the manuscripts and stories in Thomas’ mind to lead him on a journey of memory. And though Thomas is trying to write about his best friend, he ends up finding his own story in the process and coming to terms with the past. The show was nominated for four 2009 Drama Desk Awards, including Outstanding Musical.
ALL PATRONS WILL BE REQUIRED TO WEAR MASKS IN THE LOBBY AND THEATRE. THE STAGE AREA WILL BE SAFELY DISTANCED FROM THE AUDIENCE.
