Book and Lyrics by David Parr
Music by Rebecca Cordes
The Great White Way is a comedic backstage musical about second chances, finding inspiration in unlikely places and following your heart, no matter where it may lead.
In the basement of The Music Box Theatre, John Worth, an aspiring writer/composer, irons shirts for a blockbuster Broadway musical featuring a great white shark that terrorizes a sleepy beach community. John's pedestrian life suddenly changes when he falls for Estrella Proxima, a taciturn night dresser on the production who has long-since abandoned her own ambition of making it as a performer. Inspired by Estrella's journey and the legacy of his deceased idol, eccentric Broadway legend Izzy Freeman, John begins his own heartfelt musical about the wacky road to The Great White Way, proving that you can fully realize your dreams at any age and beyond any obstacle.
