Mid-Life! The Crisis Musical

Directed by Rory Mattson
With a balanced look at the “joys” of growing older, Mid-Life! strikes a chord with any adult, regardless of age. A series of scenes and sketches poke fun at the frustrations of mammograms, love handles, weekend warriors and proctology exams, but also touch on the sentimental wisdom that the later years afford us. This musical comedy is a hilarious romp with an honest humor about the trials and tribulations of the unavoidable aging process. Welcome to Mid-Life!

In this drama based on the Emmy Award-winning television movie and classic 1957 film starring Henry Fonda, a 19-year-old man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. “He doesn’t stand a chance” mutters the guard, as the 12 jurors are taken into the bleak jury room. It looks like an open-and-shut case — until one of the jurors begins opening the others’ eyes to the facts. The jurors’ final verdict and how they reach it is filled with tense scenes that will electrify the audience and keep you on the edge of your seat.
