This is a performance of Marcy in the Galaxy followed by a cocktail reception to benefit Transport Group. $50.00 of your ticket purchase is tax deductible. Book, music & lyrics by Nancy Shayne. Written by one of New York's most idiosyncratic and gifted composers, Marcy in the Galaxy is a funny, 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. This new musical is based on a story by Nancy Shayne and the Emmy Award-winning writer of HBO's Sex and the City, Michael Patrick King.
