Transport Group to Present Musicals by Giering, King, et al.
A modern musical that deals with the emotional aftermath of September 11 in New York, Crossing Brooklyn tells the story of Des and AJ, a young, idealistic couple -- both public school teachers bent on changing the world, one kid at a time. Life is full of promise and endless possibility until Des begins to unravel under the weight of her fears, ignited from that fateful September day. Splitting apart from the pressure, they struggle to find their way back to each other.
Marcy in the Galaxy is a 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 -- in this humorous and poignant self-examination that explores dreams, disappointment, family, first love, and delicious diner desserts.
