About this show

Lortel Award-winning writer-performer David Cale (Harry Clarke) returns to the Public in his musical memoir of hope, family, and transcendence. Under the direction of Tony Award winner Robert Falls (Death of a Salesman) and featuring a six-piece orchestra, We're Only Alive for a Short Amount of Time reflects on Cale's memories of growing up, escaping his parents' fraught marriage by singing in his bedroom, and tending to birds in his backyard animal hospital — until one day, things change.
