LONG STORY SHORT

February 28 - March 29, 2015

59E59 Theaters, Theatre B

From the creators of the acclaimed Off-Broadway hit Striking 12! Take a roller-coaster ride through a romance and 50-year-marriage in 95 minutes and 17 songs. A funny, frazzled couple — one Jewish, one Asian-American — careens from first date to old age, illuminating the joys and challenges of any long-term relationship through a catchy and moving pop-rock score.

“A blissful departure from the usual musical theater tropes . . . Smart and surprising.”

- San Diego Union Tribune

“Funny and true . . . expect to laugh a lot, weep a bit, and be totally swept up in an almost through-sung tale that’s told through expert language.” – San Diego Theatre Scene

“The songs blend various strains of pop and theater tradition with clever and sometimes sassy lyrics . . . a must-see for anyone who loves theater, loves music, and loves love.” – Pittsburgh City Paper
