Transport Group presents the world premiere musical Marcy in the Galaxy, featuring music and lyrics by Nancy Shayne. It is based on a story by Michael Patrick King and Nancy Shayne.
Jack Cummings III directs.
With music by one of New York's most idiosyncratic composers and a book by the Emmy Award-winning writer of HBO's Sex and the City, Marcy in the Galaxy is a funny, dark musical glimpse at what happens to a woman whose dream of being a New York artist takes longer to come true than she had planned. At mid-life, Marcy finds herself alone in The Galaxy Diner out of money and almost out of hope. What ensues is a humorous and poignant self-examination that explores dreams, disappointment, family, first love, and delicious diner desserts.
Transport Group is the winner of a special 2007 Drama Desk Award.
