WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Enter Metropolis as it transforms into a gritty 1960s New York jazz club in this bold, courageous drama. Winner of the 1999 Tony Award for Best Play and a Pulitzer Prize nominee, Side Man tells the story of Clifford and his father Gene, a brilliant musician whose career fades with the decline of jazz and the coming of rock & roll. With Gene unwilling or able to get a full time job, Clifford and his mother struggle to support each other and survive in his absence. We see the family fall apart as Gene puts his love of jazz before his family. Sharp dialogue and dimestore philosophy from the musicians in Gene's band and the storytelling as told by son Clifford propel this amazing play. Metropolis is proud to bring to life this beautiful, compelling story about love, hope and growing up too fast. Includes adult themes and language.
