Streetlights, People!'s production of Adam Gwon's 2008 Off-Broadway musical four-hander ORDINARY DAYS is revived at London Theatre Workshop for three weeks only after sell-out performances last year at Hen and Chickens Theatre. Do you know who's who?
Following two sold-out performances at the Hen and Chickens in October, Streetlights, People! Productions are transferring their production of Adam Gwon's award-winning musical ORDINARY DAYS to London Theatre Workshop for a strictly limited three-week engagement. It runs from 29 May to 17 June 2017, with a press night on 31 May.
The transfer features the return of original cast members Alistair Frederick (Hotel For Criminals, New Wimbledon Studio Theatre; Lead Vocalist, Tokyo Disney; Bathhouse: The Musical, London and US cast) as Jason; Neil Cameron (NewsRevue, Canal Café Theatre; That Catholic Thing, Camden People's Theatre) as Warren; and Nora Perone (Royal Central School of Speech and Drama) as Deb, while introducing Kirby Hughes (From Here to Eternity, original West End cast; A Damsel in Distress, Chichester Festival Theatre; Flashdance, original West End cast) as Claire.
ORDINARY DAYS follows the parallel lives of four New Yorkers struggling to find meaning in the madness: Claire, who can't let go of her past; Jason, determined to begin their future together; Warren, an artist who's lost his sense of purpose; and Deb, a student who's lost her thesis notes. It is a witty, poignant, and ultimately very relatable story about human connection and finding beauty in unexpected places. In his review of the original Off-Broadway production, New York Times reviewer Charles Isherwood wrote that "Ordinary Days... captures with stinging clarity that uneasy moment in youth when doubts begin to cloud hopes for a future of unlimited possibility."
ORDINARY DAYS is directed by Jen Coles (Royal Central School of Speech and Drama), with musical direction by Rowland Braché (Footloose, UK Tour).
