30 Days of NYMF on BroadwayWorld Day 3: PLANE CRAZY by Suzy Conn
My whole world changed on May 10, 2005, when I got the happy news that PLANE CRAZY had been accepted into the 2005 New York Musical Theatre Festival.
I had been given the challenge of bringing to life, on a New York stage, the swinging '60s Jet Age, complete with randy pilots, hot stews, sleazy ad guys, and crusading feminists.
PLANE CRAZY is a very personal piece of theater for me, because it explores the fundamental question of the choices that women face, set in my favorite time. The mid-sixties represented a time of clashing values. It was the fault line between the traditional and modern worlds, and as an artist I am attracted to the natural dramatic potential in that conflict.

I will be forever in debt to my fabulous cast and creative team, my producers, my investors, and NYMF for helping me to get Plane Crazy off the ground!
