Ordinary Days is an original one-act musical by exciting new writer/composer, Adam Gwon. It has a refreshingly honest and funny score of vibrant and memorable songs.
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 about growing up and enjoying the view.
'…...a heartfelt and clever look at life in modern-day New York.' (‘Time Out’, New York)
REVIEW OF 'ORDINARY DAYS' by NIGEL DAMS
Ordinary Days was a delightful surprise. In a very intimate setting, with no more staging than a few boxes, director Polly King conjured New York, complete with the Metropolitan museum, a taxi cab, an apartment, a skyscraper roof and sundry street scenes. All the scene changes were done by the four performers with very pleasing continuity.
The performers were outstanding throughout - each bringing a satisfying and believable mix of emotions and power to their characters, all while acting, speaking, singing and moving boxes, which I thought required more than the usual amount of skill, practice and focus. They did it superbly, and the scene with the storm of paper from the rooftops was epic - really, really effective.
Ms King and the entire cast and crew deserve high praise for this unexpected gem of a performance.
