"Ordinary Days" is a comic and inspiring musical about making simple connections in a chaotic city. It is a sweet, fleet, and tender story that follows its characters as they fight through the emotional noise and dramatic traffic to arrive at a clearer sense of who they are and what they want to be.
See it if you like stories about people struggling for meaning and life in NYC, enjoy happy endings and can tolerate "ordinary" singing and music.
