Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts Thrust Theatre

From one of musical theatre's most exciting new composers comes Ordinary Days, a refreshingly honest and funny musical about making real connections in the city that never sleeps (but probably should at some point).

Ordinary Days tells the story of four young New Yorkers whose lives intersect as they search for fulfillment, happiness, love and cabs. Through a score of vibrant and memorable songs, their experiences ring startlingly true to life. Ordinary Days is an original musical for anyone who's ever struggled to appreciate the simple things in a complex place. With equal doses of humor and poignancy, it celebrates how millions of individual stories combine in unexpected ways to make New York City such a unique and extraordinary home.

ORDINARY DAYS is produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.

“Quietly extraordinary... cleanses the soul, lifts the spirit, and reminds you what you love about New York.” – Stage Left

“Filled... with hope and humor and desolation.” – The New York Times

“...[this] sensational new musical is a breath of fresh air...tight, succinct and full of revelations...remarkably realistic, brutally honest and filled with the hopes and dreams of four young people on the brink of new discoveries.” – Chicago Theatre Review
