A nursing home in northern Idaho is shutting down, making the futures of the longtime employees and three remaining patients uncertain. Even worse, Gerald, a 91-year-old patient suffering from Alzheimer's, has wandered off. The search for Gerald takes place in the midst of a record-breaking blizzard, but that's not the only crisis the staff is dealing with. This Midwest premiere by award-winning playwright Samuel D. Hunter and director Joanie Schultz -- the same team behind last season's The Whale -- is an emotional and funny look at life with plenty of unexpected twists. Learn More

This funny and poignant musical story about two life long friends is well worth seeing. Great acting and singing, coupled with an enjoyable score and book, and under the direction of Tony-award winning Roger Maltby,this is a hidden gem of an intimate musical that you should see. You will be pleasantly surprised at the scope of the production.

The Story of My Life ran on Broadway in 2009. The Associated Press called Bartram’s lyrics “nimble, often intricate but never too complicated.” And Kathie Lee Gifford on The Today Show called the show “the kind of thing that really uplifts you in the times that we live in today.”

__The Story of My Life _tells the story of two childhood friends and how their friendship profoundly defined their lives. Thomas Weaver is a best-selling, award-winning author. Alvin Kelby was his best friend for 30 years. But time can test the bonds of friendship, and when it does, Thomas calls on the only resource he has — his stories of Alvin — to learn where things went wrong. A richly melodic musical, The Story of My Life is a soaring tribute to the power of friendship and the people who change our lives forever.
