The Extraordinary Ordinary

  • Dreamlight Theatre Company is presenting the world premiere production of The Extraordinary Ordinary, a musical by Scott Burkell (book and lyrics) and Paul Loesel (music), directed by Chip Klose, November 29-December 18 at the Clurman Theatre at Theatre Row. The six-member cast consists of Courtney Balan (Broadway: Cry-Baby, In My Life), Pamela Bob (Off-Broadway: People Like Us, Gay Divorce), Kristoffer Cusick (Broadway: Wicked, Saturday Night Fever), Patrick Oliver Jones (New York debut), Kelly McCormick (National Tours: Les Misérables, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang) and Jonathan Parkey (National Tour: Duck for President).

    The Extraordinary Ordinary "follows a group of friends as they face the challenges of life in Manhattan and reveals how one life-altering event forces each of them to discover the extraordinary beauty in the most ordinary of days." Here are my photos of the production. For more information, click here.
