[Title of Show] Begins Cohoes Music Hall Run on Jan. 26
COHOES – Coming to the Cohoes Music Hall on Jan. 26 is the Broadway play, [Title of Show]! The production – book by Hunter Bell and music by Jeff Bowen – outlines the life of two playwrights, and is set to run from Jan. 26th to Feb. 12th.
Jeff and Hunter, two struggling writers, hear about a new musical theatre festival. However, the deadline for submissions is a mere three weeks away. With nothing to lose, the pair decides to try to create something new with the help of their friends Susan, Heidi and pianist Larry on the keys. With the cast in place, Jeff and Hunter begin a conversation about what to write about. Eventually, Jeff suggests they write about what to write about. [title of show] — taken from the space on the festival’s application form which asks for the “[title of show]” — follows Hunter and Jeff and their friends on their journey through the gauntlet of creative self-expression. In the span of 90 minutes they write and perform their show at the festival and learn lessons about themselves as people, friends and artists. [title of show] is, above all, a love letter to the musical theatre — a uniquely American art form — and to the joy of collaboration.
The shows are set to run Thursday to Sunday, from Jan. 26th to Feb. 12th. From Thursday to Saturday, plays will start at 8:00 pm, while Saturdays and Sundays have 2:00 pm matinees. Tickets to this event range from $33.00 to $45.00, and can be purchased here. For those that wish to purchase over the phone, they can call the box office at 518-434-0776.
