Edges

Performed April 2-5, 2008 | The Barn Theatre @ Winthrop

According to press notes, “EDGES is a young and exciting collection of songs linked by theme. Filled with music ranging from pop to gospel, intimate solos and high-spirited group numbers, we follow four young adults as each attempts to discover their full potential.” It is a song cycle about the trials and tribulations of moving into adulthood and the search for love, commitment, and meaning.”

A note from Pasek & Paul: “EDGES isn’t a traditional musical – it’s a collection of songs that are thematically linked. The four characters sing songs posing classic coming of age questions: Who are we and who do we want to become? Our hope is that EDGES can be a show produced by people wanting to pose these same questions, and that in the process of rehearsing and performing the show, begin to answer them.”

Benj Pasek and Justin Paul are up-and-coming musical theatre writers. Their best known work,EDGES, has been presented in Washington, Philadelphia, New York City, and Albany. The University of Michigan graduates also write for Disney Channel’s “Johnny and the Sprites,” and are the all-time youngest recipients of the Jonathan Larson Award.
