The Coconut Grove Playhouse presents the pre-Broadway production of the new musical Passin' It On, starring Tony Award winner Len Cariou. The book is by Larry Atlas, with music & lyrics by Terry Cashman. Jeffrey B. Moss directs.
Passin' It On deals with Sig McCartney, played by Mr. Cariou, the owner of a baseball-themed sports bar in a small South Florida town, who earns a modest living that is rich in family, friendship, and love. He's surrounded by "a world in which little businesses get eaten by big ones; house calls have turned into HMO's and family picinics have been replaced by $3,000.00 theme park weekends..."
A hardworking man, Sig's life is simple but happy. But when the local baseball spring training camp moves north and the tourists follow, Sig learns happiness can come at a steep price. With few patrons, bills mounting and a daughter who has sacrificed her goals for her father's passion, Sig must choose between his childhood dream or his family's survival.
The official opening in Miami will be on Friday, October 21 at 7:30 PM and after its close in Miami on November 6 will continue its run for one more week the Broward Parker Playhouse in Fort Lauderdale the dates are from November 8 through November 13.
