Taking My Turn is the award-winning, critically acclaimed musical with lyrics by Will Holt, music by Gary William Friedman, and adaptation/original direction by Robert H. Livingston, the same team that collaborated on the hit show The Me Nobody Knows.
Taking My Turn was one of the first musicals to deal head-on in an unfiltered manner with the accumulation of life's milestones - in other words, aging. The spoken words were collected from interviews with people "in their prime"," which became the basis for the non-linear book. The rich, contemporary score was exuberantly sung by an amazing cast of Broadway and recording veterans including Margaret Whiting, Cissy Houston, Marni Nixon, and Tiger Haynes.
Taking My Turn opened Off-Broadway in 1983 and won the 1984 Outer Critic's Circle Award for Best Lyrics/Music and a Drama Desk nomination for Best Musical. It was subsequently presented on the PBS Great Performance Series.
