Music and Lyrics by Jeff Bowen
Book by Hunter Bell
Hunter, Jeff, and their friends are on a journey through the gauntlet of creative self-expression. In the span of 90 minutes they write and perform their show at a festival and learn lessons about themselves as people, friends and artists. [title of show] is, above all, a love letter to the musical theater—a uniquely American art form—and to the joy of collaboration.
