Part of Theater for the New City's Dream Up Festival: This new musical examines the lives of two aging men struggling to stay afloat in the rapidly evolving New York theater industry.
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.
