From the award winning musical theatre writer Adam Gwon, Ordinary Days opens at the Rosemary Branch Theatre for a limited run of ten performances from Wednesday, 18 February 2015 (Press Night: Thursday, 19 February 2015).
Atomicus Entertainment returns to the Rosemary Branch to deliver this refreshingly honest and funny musical about making real connections in the city that never sleeps (but probably should at some point).
When Deb loses her most precious possession – the notes to her graduate thesis – she unwittingly starts a chain of events that turns the ordinary days of four New Yorkers into something extraordinary. Told through a series of intricately connected songs and vignettes, Ordinary Days is an original musical about growing up and enjoying the view.
Through a score of vibrant and memorable songs, their experiences ring startlingly true to life. Ordinary Days is an original musical for anyone who's ever struggled to appreciate the simple things in a complex place. With equal doses of humour and poignancy, it celebrates stopping to find beauty iwn the rush of city life.
Rising musical theatre writer Adam Gwon, named one “50 to Watch” by The Dramatist magazine and hailed as a “promising newcomer” by The New York Times. His musicals include The Boy Detective Fails, Cloudlands, Bernice Bobs Her Hair and String which have been produced at Roundabout Theatre Company, Signature Theatre, South Coast Repertory and London’s West End. Adam has won the Kleban Award, the Fred Ebb Award, the Frederick Loewe Award, the Second Stage Theatre Donna Perret Rosen Award, the Weston Playhouse New Musical Award, the ASCAP Harold Adamson Award and the MAC John Wallowitch Award, as well as commissions from Roundabout Theatre Company, Playwrights Horizons, Signature Theatre, South Coast Repertory and Broadway Across America.

“A quietly affecting show . . . Ordinary Days introduces a promising newcomer to our-talent hungry musical theater.

Ordinary Days . . . captures with stinging clarity that uneasy moment in youth when doubts begin to cloud hopes for a future of unlimited possibility” The New York Times
“Full of idiosyncratic charm . . . a heartfelt and clever look at life in modern-day New York” Time Out New York (Critic’s Pick)
