About the Show

When the Beatles were asked to name their favorite American musical artist at a press conference in New York, they shouted out “NILSSON!"

Called “the most famously anonymous composer and performer of our time,” this two-time Grammy Award winner (and legendary hell-raiser) is best known for “Everybody’s Talkin’ at me…,” “Can’t live, if living is without you…,” “One is the loneliest number…,” and “You put the lime in the coconut....” Now his special genius has captured the imagination of Steve Gunderson and Javier Velasco - the award-winning team that brought you Suds: The Rockin’ 60s Musical Soap Opera and Back to Bacharach and David.

Gunderson and Velasco have crafted Nilsson’s evocative and heartfelt repertoire into a song cycle that explores the incredible journey from innocence to adulthood through the many stages of love.

Tony Award-winners Gregory Jbara and Alice Ripley are the stars. Jbara created Dad in Billy Elliot the Musical on Broadway and also plays Deputy Commissioner Moore on the TV show “Blue Bloods.” Ripley originated leading roles in a number of Broadway musicals, including Side Show and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Next to Normal.

This is a world premiere musical event not to be missed!
