12 STEPS: THE MUSICAL by Elise Maurine Milner
by BWW News Desk - Jul 30, 2016

The funny thing about ADDICTION is, everyone has one! This comedic and heart warming story follows Graham Chili, a country boy from Texas who has just moved to New York City to follow his dreams as a wall street stock broker by day and a Cabaret singer by night. Looking to make friends and connect with his new surroundings in the spirit of his hometown 'mega church capital,' and fresh off the bus in Timesquare, he enters a Manhattan Mega church in search of the 'choir practice' room. Instead he erroneously stumbles upon four different 12 step addiction meetings going on in the church basement that divert his attention, inspire his love life, and creates new friends and life realizations! '12 Steps' both entertains and educates also with light parody, both using the popularity and the mystery of the infamous self help program without mockery, but with clever direction and understanding using humor, gentleness, and ingenuity. Come get your 'Higher Power' on! (more...)
