THE BEST THING THAT HAPPENED TO ME is an original musical about a Dallas, Texas salon owner named Justin Alexander. One day while working at his salon, Justin finds out from one of his clients - a detective with the Dallas Police Department - that his deceased ex-girlfriend has a son who is in the child welfare system. Upon further investigation, Justin discovers that the deceased girlfriend’s son, who was put up for adoption, was born around 9 months after he and his ex-girlfriend broke up. Justin immediately begins a pursuit to make contact with the young man who may be his son.
While Justin is in pursuit to find his son, a parallel story begins to emerge dealing with a young teenager, Michael, who has been shuffled through the foster care system. Michael currently lives at a very seedy youth facility in South Dallas. Michael befriends girl at the facility, a Pollyanna optimist name Veronica who encourages him to look at the brighter side of life by believing in a higher power.
Meanwhile, the Dallas news media becomes involved in a story about a young man who is living at a youth facility in Dallas. A deceased woman has left an inheritance involving millions of dollars in cash, assets and property to her next-of-kin. Things then become complicated when it is discovered that Michael may be the heir to the deceased woman’s fortune.
The Best Thing that Happened to Me is a feel-good musical dramedy that will make audiences laugh, sing and encourage people – while providing escapism and optimism – elements that audiences are looking for today.
Soundtrack is available on iTunes, CD Baby, Rhapsody and other stores.
