The Usual:
A Musical Love Story

Book and Lyrics by Alan Gordon
Music by Mark Sutton-Smith
The World Premiere of an exciting new musical!
Directed by Tony Caselli
March 22 – April 22, 2012 

Take one lonely guy, add a shot of lonely girl and a dash of spunky bartender, blend and serve! Two strangers, each unhappy with their love lives, have a chance encounter in a bar where “the usual” isn’t usual at all. Join Kip, Valerie and Sam as they navigate the treacherous waters of dating, romance and relationships. This modern musical journey through love and life will keep you coming back for more.
