Ed, a piano tuner and composer haunted by visions of his late wife, is writing a musical with his ailing lyricist friend, Howie. Ed pitches it to several theaters hoping one of them will bite. However, after several rejections, Ed's mental health begins to deteriorate, turning his collaboration with Howie toxic. The show chronicles Ed's struggle to escape his past, in the form of his wife's ghost.
See it if Musicals are your thing and you've reached the age when you're resigned to the fact that your dreams will fade but life is still worthwhile.
Don't see it if clever song writing about the world of musicals and growing older has no appeal for you. I'm over 65 and I loved this show!
See it if you like the old story of the composer/lyricist team who keep trying for a hit and never quite get there; have a best friend;like kitsch
Don't see it if you expect a surprise ending;expect perfect singing and elegant lyrics; do not give small time playwrights/composers/lyricists a chance
See it if You enjoy a story about male friendship and you don't mind some mediocre singing of nice songs, and some mixed levels of performances.
Don't see it if You are expecting highly professional singing and acting.
See it if you want to experience well-meaning, affordable community theatre with a receptive audience?
Don't see it if you love music—you'll rarely discern melody in the mostly-spoken songs and vocal delivery painful; Kyle Hughes is the notable exception!
See it if You have a friend in the show. The lead actor who played Ed has most of the songs. Not sure if this was best for the show...
Don't see it if You find arrogance annoying. If you seek a musical that has songs with memorable melodies instead of talking singing. The Ghost sang best.
