From one of musical theatre's most exciting new composers comes Ordinary Days, a refreshingly honest and funny musical about making real connections in the city that never sleeps. In the bustle and routine of New York, Ordinary Days tells the story of four everyday people discovering that their dreams, their passions, and their struggles are anything but ordinary. True to BoHo’s Bohemian ideals, this intimate musical is about finding the beauty and the extraordinary in the everyday. The LA Times calls Ordinary Days "arrestingly poetic", and the New York Times says this is "a quietly affecting show."
