THE STORY OF MY LIFE

The Story of My LifeThe Story of My Life is a musical with music and lyrics by Neil Bartram, and a book by Brian Hill. The show follows two childhood friends from age six to 35 and has only two characters.

The musical debuted in Toronto in 2006 and premiered on Broadway in February 2009, closing after five regular performances.

The musical follows a lifelong friendship between two men, Alvin and Thomas, whose childhood bond continues throughout their adult years. Amazon.com describes the musical as “an authentic and affecting work, told through a series of songs in turn playful, touching and dramatic, and expertly orchestrated by Jonathan Tunick. One New York critic predicted, ‘When the original cast recording comes out, see if you don’t find yourself moved to Google the name of some long-lost friend with whom you simply lost touch. The Story Of My Life inspires us to reconnect with those who were part of the earliest chapters of our own life stories’.”

Reviews: “The Story of My Life is a heartfelt little musical that has the courage of its sweet-tempered, low-key convictions. These days, that’s a novelty. In a Broadway world of big musicals determined to sell themselves, this gentle new show celebrates softly but with an emotional pull that slowly wins you over.” – Michael Kuchwara, – The Associated Press
