Featuring the music of Cole Porter to Carole King, Leonard Bernstein to John Bucchino, Ari Axelrod's Taking the Wheel "unfailingly engaging and intelligent" (KDHX St. Louis) story of one Jewish man, happily a passenger in life's normal journey, who is thrust into the driver's seat when he encounters unforeseen twists and turns.

Every song was a play I had never seen before, and he connected with his audience in a completely honest and loving manner. An old soul in a beautiful young man."
