"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 You need super interesting story lines. While very well executed by phenomenal actors the material isn't super deep. Go for the fun.

Don't see it if You've seen this kind of musical, but the capable hands of The Keen Co, with Mr. Sherman and Ms. Marion surprise. Dull-grey modular set.
See it if 4 New Yorkers trying to fit in. The quarreling straight couple. The cheerful gay man with chance encounter with an anti-social woman

See it if you want to see a great cast and some amazing songs. It's a bit slow at first, but the whole show really comes together in the end.

Don't see it if you're tired of small cast song cycle style shows that throws a tragedy at the end in order to make it seem deeper or more relevant.
See it if Strangers hustling to stay afloat in a less romantic New York City find meaning and calmness in the ordinary. Beautiful songs, light plot.
Don't see it if Begins semi-generic with NYC transplants lost and confused of why they’re in this concrete jungle, gets slightly deeper. 9/11 is triggering.
Also Free ticket from Show Score.
