Stages and Pages: Ordinary Days


Ordinary Days portrays four New Yorkers whose lives intersect by chance:  Claire and Jason, a young couple uncertain about taking their relationship to the next level; Deb, a grad student; and Warren, a struggling but obstinately optimistic artist.   When Deb loses her most precious possession, the notes for her thesis, a chain of events begins that touches all of their lives.  As we follow the four of them in their daily lives, we see that the most ordinary days sometimes hold extraordinary meaning.   Told entirely in song, this story shows the power of human connections in even the biggest and most impersonal of cities. 


See Ordinary Days at the GCTC from October 31 to November 19, 2017.
