LONG STORY SHORT is a new musical with music, lyrics and book by Brendan Milburn and Valerie Vigoda, based on the play “An Infinite Ache” by David Schulner. This searing new musical is from the amazing creators of TRW’s New Year’s Eve musical sensation STRIKING 12. LONG STORY SHORT is a two-actor show, with a four-piece band that covers a romance and 50-year marriage in 98 minutes and 17 songs. Originally commissioned by City Theatre of Pittsburgh and co-produced in its world premiere by TheatreWorks Palo Alto, LONG STORY SHORT was also produced at San Diego Rep. It has been described as a “roller-coaster romance from the creators of the STRIKING 12, this charming pop musical transcends two twenty-somethings’ disastrous first date to whirl, for better or worse, into a lifetime of love. This funny, frazzled couple careens from new-found desire to old-time commitment, reckoning along the way the costs, the compromises, and the enduring promise of an affair you will always remember – a passion you won’t soon forget.”
Long Story Short was developed at City Theatre during its MOMENTUM festival in 2007 and 2008, and at TheatreWorks as part of its New Works Initiative. The production is supported in part by grants from the Jonathan Larson Performing Arts Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.
