Allow plenty of time to find parking. Theater has a very small lot that is hard to find.

Description

A darkened theatre, New York City, 1988. Friends gather for the memorial of one of Broadway’s greatest – but least known – music makers. He was the man who wrote the lyrics “One Singular Sensation” for A Chorus Line and nothing could have described him better. Nominated for the Best Musical Tony Award and featuring music Stephen Sondheim said he “wishes he’d written,” it is the moving and emotionally charged true story of turning your life into art.
