About this show

A musical based on the actual life experience of composer William Finn. This engaging and fast-paced musical by the author of Falsettos and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee recounts the life-changing experience of fictional composer, Gordon Schwinn. Barely enduring a frustrating job working on a children's TV show, Gordon suffers a sudden life-threatening brain disorder which sends him into emergency surgery. The tumultuous, comical and surreal ordeal that engulfs Gordon and those closest to him -- his mother, partner and publicist -- teaches everyone, especially Gordon, something profound about what is truly important in life, and in love.
