"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.

Don't see it if For large scale flashy Broadway musical--if don't like small stage, small cast productions--need a "meaty" experience

Don't see it if The score is rather ordinary with no original or memorable songs. The creators also saved on staging as the set doesn’t exist.
