Our NYC musical: Phase One

On Saturday we're going to try out songs from our musical, Major Deegan, How Ya Feelin'? It's a show that follows the Deedle Deedle Dees on a typical / fantastical day as they deal with cranky drivers, nutty public school administrators, sidewalk philosophers, and other New York City characters on their way to multiple shows. The Dees stop their journey frequently to sing about the history of the places they're passing through -- and are often aided in their storytelling by important people from the past who conveniently make appearances to offer their side of things.

It's a huge undertaking so we're putting it together in pieces. To start, we're just going to be playing programs of the show's songs (many of which you already know) as concerts. Then, as we finish the filmed and live elements of the show, we'll start adding more layers -- and of course inviting you to come watch as we stumble through...

This Saturday (Jan 8) we're doing a selection of songs from the production for our monthly variety show. Audience participation will be strongly encouraged and if you come early, we might ask you to take part in the show. (Come early! We want you to be in the show!) If you it seems like you and/or your kids might be a good fit for these performances, we might even ask you to take part in a more elaborate staging in the (hopefully) near future.

See you Saturday!
