BWW TV Exclusive: CUTTING-EDGE COMPOSERS CORNER- Zak Resnick Sings Zoe Sarnak's 'Reason to Fall'

Here is Zak Resnick singing "Reason to Fall" by Zoe Sarnak from her musical The Years Between: a poignant window into lives, loves, and dreams of the new "lost generation" set to a rock, folk, pop and soul score. The piece centers on Piper, a 27 year-old modern Peter Pan living in a modern American city, and the group of millennials in her life. They struggle financially, change jobs, and move through long term but non-committal relationships in a snapshot of the "boomerang" (NY Times) generation and their idealized, if sometimes misguided, search for purpose. One of those friends is Damon, parentless and fiercely loyal to his friends and relationships. Damon has his heart broken by BA, the woman he thought he'd marry. He revisits their old apartment together and standing in a ghost-town of their memories he sings.
