In My Life is a surreal and powerful experience. It is a Broadway musical about a boy with Tourette's syndrome and a brain tumor. He meets a girl and love brews but cosmic forces are working against them. The show features dance pieces with angels in heaven and the boy's dead sister trying to plead his case to the higher power. It's not a story for everyone, but definitely for those who want to stretch their imaginations contemplating the enigma that is life. And afterlife.
J. T. is a guitar-playing songwriter coping with Tourette's syndrome, while his girlfriend Jenny, a personal ads editor for the Village Voice, deals with obsessive-compulsive disorder. If that isn't quirky enough to get you out of the house, add to it the fact that dead people keep interfering with their lives throughout the story. God is portrayed as a regular guy who prefers to be called Al and angels appear at times with whimsy and grace befitting devilish pixies. These unwitting young people are about to become players in God's first reality opera and what is Opera without Tragedy?
The players in the musical In My Life are Jessica Boevers (Jenny), Christopher J. Hanke (J.T.), Michael J. Farina (Al), Roberta Gumbel (Liz), Michael Halling (Nick), Laura Jordan (Samantha), Chiara Navara (Vera), and David Turner (Winston). The songs in this production are heartwarming and funny tunes like 'Life Turns On a Dime,' 'What a Strange Life We Live' and 'Doomed.'
The music and script for In My Life were written by Grammy and Academy Award winner Joseph Brooks. This musical has everything! Love, despair, hope, humor, life, and tragedy will all be factors in the journey these lovers must embark upon to get their lives back to normal.
