Description

The Story of My Life is a musical with music and lyrics by Neil Bartram, and a book by Brian Hill.

Nominated for four 2009 Drama Desk Awards – Outstanding Musical, Book, Music and Lyrics – The Story Of My Life is a Broadway rarity: an intimate musical that candidly explores the simplicity of human need and the complexity of emotions under which it lies buried. Composer-lyricist Neil Bartram and librettist Brian Hill have created an authentic and affecting work, told through a series of songs – in turn playful, touching and dramatic. The Story Of My Life inspires us to reconnect with those who were part of the earliest chapters of our own life stories.

The Story Of My Life follows the friendship of Alvin and Thomas, two men from a small town. These lifelong friends are reunited after Alvin's mysterious death. In the abstract world of his mind, Thomas struggles to write Alvin's eulogy while recounting the many turns their lives have taken since meeting as children. Alvin searches through the manuscripts and stories in Thomas' mind to lead him on a journey of remembrance. Through music and song, these two friends recount their adventures, explore their past dissonance, and ultimately discover what is at the base of every strong friendship...love.
