With Music by David Shire and Lyrics by Richard Maltby, Jr., each song tells a story of modern romance or finding oneself. The audience is taken on a tour of love, heartbreak and self-discovery with subjects ranging from loneliness and love triangles to anticipation and adventure.
Director Matt Davis, Assistant Professor and Head of Directing and Stage Management with The University of Alabama Department of Theatre and Dance, had this to say:
“This is a great show for today, as it explores the excitement of young love and the importance of human interaction. This bold journey takes the young cast through all the highs and lows of relationships in a very candid and personal way. Maltby and Shire’s songs tell perfectly crafted stories. They’re unique, exciting, filled with interesting characters, and they really showcase the versatility and talent of our performers. We look forward to sharing these songs with you!”
