“Four young New Yorkers intersect as they each search for fulfillment, happiness, love, and cabs.” That is one tag line for Ordinary Days, a musical written by American composer Adam Gwon.
But that does not encompass the experience that is Ordinary Days. The music is fresh and original, and it is the vehicle by which this show moves and is, or is not, connected. And that is the whole point: connection.
We can all appreciate connection in today’s world. After two years spent apart with only technology holding us together, connection has come to the forefront of our minds. We are primed for a musical that wants us, the audience, to do a little of the connecting work.
Ordinary Days is a sung through musical, 90 minutes long with no intermission. No loss of connection. The string of songs and vignettes requires the audience to find the through-line of the show. Gwon “liked the idea of engaging the audience to make connections in a show about the importance of making connections.”
Director Mitchell King has fun things planned for this show that could only be possible in MCT’s theater. Of course, we aren’t going to tell you what they are. It is exciting to have a space that sparks so much creativity and brings unique experiences to our audience.
Make use of your connections and bring a group with you to MCT’s season closing musical, Ordinary Days. Your heart will love the music, and your mind will love the story,
