Ordinary Days musical by Adam Gwon

When Deb loses her most precious possession--the notes to her graduate thesis--she unwittingly starts a chain of events that turns the ordinary days of four New Yorkers into something extraordinary. Told through a series of intricately connected songs and vignettes, Ordinary Days is an original musical about growing up and enjoying the view.

What the critics are saying:

"A QUIETLY AFFECTING SHOW... Ordinary Days introduces a promising newcomer to our talent-hungry musical theater. Mr. Gwon writes crisp, fluid and funny lyrics that reflect the racing minds of four New Yorkers on a nervous search for their immediate futures. Ordinary Days...captures with stinging clarity that uneasy moment in youth when doubts begin to cloud hopes for a future of unlimited possibility." --Charles Isherwood, The New York Times

"FULL OF IDIOSYNCRATIC CHARM... A heartfelt and clever look at life in modern-day New York." (Critic's Pick) --Adam Feldman, Time Out New York

"ARRESTINGLY POETIC... A small-scale pleasure. Those who want to spot talented up-and-comers will want to check out Adam Gwon." (Critic's Choice) --Charles McNulty, LA Times
