Based on true journal entries written by teens spanning two decades, ONE DAY follows the electrifying journey of eight teenagers as they face ravaging internal struggles and exhilarating triumphs - from drug abuse to sexual awakening - on the passage to discovering their own truths. Their scribbled anecdotes, poems and short stories are brought to life on stage through a score, book and co-direction by Michael Sottile, choreography and co-direction byRay Leeper ("So You Think You Can Dance," "Dancing With The Stars"), and cutting-edge, interactive projection design by Google Grant recipient Andrew Lazarow (I Am Harvey Milk, Brooklynite).
ONE DAY is inspired by Sottile's 1999 cult-hit musical Inappropriate, for which he wrote the music & lyrics, and co-conceived with the late Lonnie McNeil. Inappropriate debuted Off-Broadway and in Los Angeles in 1999-2000, and was hailed by critics as a "positively transporting" musical that "does an excellent job of conveying the primal emotional themes of adolescence" (The New York Times) with a "rich score and honest words that are ultimately, unexpectedly inspiring - put over with the kind of fervent energy that made 'Rent' so remarkable." (The New York Post). McNeil has since passed away, but Sottile continued to write new music and harbor a passion for exploring the realities of adolescence.
