Music and Lyrics by Adam Gwon
November 01 – December 09, 2012
From the bustling streets and subways to the quiet rooftops, Ordinary Days tells the interwoven story of four New Yorkers on a desperate search for their futures. Warren, an idealistic aspiring artist and professional cat-sitter, finds a notebook belonging to Deb, a stressed-out graduate student frantically working on her dissertation on Virginia Woolf. Jason and Claire are a couple navigating the rough terrain of their serious relationship and are wondering if moving in together has begun to push them apart. Although the two couples never meet, they alter each other’s lives in this bittersweet musical centered around the city that never sleeps. Adam Gwon’s score of vibrant music and crisp, fluid, often funny lyrics reflect the racing minds of the four characters as they try to appreciate the beauty found in an ordinary day.
