Clyde Edgerton's best selling novel is now a musical
with songs by former Red Clay Rambler Mike Craver.
"Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would ever see a musical about assisted living. It's fun and real and sensitively presented. We often forget to look at our older loved ones as the heroes they really are. Well done!"
Andi Reese - songwriter, performer, gerontologist, and Medicare counselor
"You've got to see it to believe it. At the very moment Edgerton confronts despair and loneliness, those very issues turn out to be ripe material for satire."
"Among the delights here are the smart dialogue, the pointed satire of the nursing home industry, and, most of all, the chorus of idiosyncractic, opinionated characters who've got more life left in them than anyone quite expects."
The New York Times (of the novel on which the musical is based)
