The Story Of My Life, by Music & Lyrics by Neil Bartram Book by Brian Hill
Bravo!

5.0
"The Story of My Life" is a must see production.

As I sat waiting for the show to begin, I was amazed by the set without even know what the show would bring. An all white set of books upon books, upon bookcases, upon a white floor, set against the black background brought elegance and drama to the stage before even a word was sung or spoken.

The show begins with Tom (John Stanier), an award-winning author, quietly entering the stage as he struggles to write his quirky best friend Alvin's (Kelly David Carr) eulogy. It is then that we enter into Tom's mind and he takes us through the years and decades of their friendship as he struggles to find the words and the answers.

Director Julie Taliaferro has brought to the stage a wonderful moving production, exceptionally directed and beautifully performed. I look forward to many more productions from her.

John Stanier beautifully portrays the character Tom with the right amount of warmth while still letting the audience know the character Tom can be quite the insensitive ass.

Kelly David Carr sweet portrayal of innocence and goodness with a hidden deep sadness is mesmerizing.

John and Kelly are superb in their portrayals of their characters. Contrasting in nature and in costume, they both bring heart and truth to their characters. Bravo!

Musical director Bill Newberry has worked his magic.

The piano accompaniment by Barbara Capogna Macko is beautiful.

Jasmine Vogue Pai set design is perfect.

The lighting by John Parker, Jr. extremely effective for setting the many moods of the show.

Please make the time to see this show if you have not already done so. You will not be disappointed.
