WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

This autobiographical 1998 musical from Tony Award winner William Finn (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) is a medical tragedy as seen through the zany iris of a Looney Tunes short. After struggling composer Gordon Michael Schwinn (Tony Award nominee Jonathan Groff) collapses face-first into a plate of spaghetti, he is diagnosed with a brain tumor and is forced to come to terms with his creative ambitions and the lovable screw-ups in his life: an overbearing mother, a ruthless kiddie-show host named Mr. Bungee, and a boyfriend who'd "rather be sailing."
