Lyric’s Flagler Center premieres Ordinary Days, January 24-26

The Lyric Theatre announces the premiere of Ordinary Days, January 24-26, the story of four young New Yorkers whose lives intersect as they search for fulfillment, happiness, love and cabs. Through a score of vibrant and memorable songs, their experiences ring startlingly true to life. Ordinary Days is an original musical for anyone who’s ever struggled to appreciate the simple things in a complex place. With equal doses of humor and poignancy, it celebrates how 8.3 million individual stories combine in unexpected ways to make New York City such a unique and extraordinary home.

The Story: When Deb loses her most precious possession–the notes to her graduate thesis–she unwittingly starts a chain of events that turns the ordinary days of four New Yorkers into something extraordinary. Told through a series of intricately connected songs and vignettes, Ordinary Days is an original musical about growing up and enjoying the view.
The show is a reminder to treasure the “ordinary days,” events and relationships that teach us to grow even stronger relationships that are able to face the “extraordinary.” It focuses on the difficulties of making and maintaining relationships and remaining committed to those connections as they are tested. It focuses on seeing the beauty in the ordinary. It happens to include the 9/11 tragedies as an obstacle to one character’s search for future happiness. A pinnacle moment is reached as she tells of the events of that day in the song “I’ll Be Here.”

About the composer: Adam Gwon, award-winning composer and lyricist, is a graduate of Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. He is the recipient of several awards, including the Kleban, Ebb and Loewe Awards for Excellence in Musical Theatre Writing, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers Harold Adamson Award, and the Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs John Wallowitch Award.

The Lyric Theatre is a not for profit organization, 59 SW Flagler Avenue, Stuart.
