BREAKDOWN

Edges is a song-cycle about four burgeoning adults asking classic coming-of-age questions. Written by Oscar, Grammy, Tony and Golden Globe winning songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul; this charming, witty and honest examination of adulthood explores what happens when we are teetering on the edges of our lives. The songs cover such universal issues as love, commitment, identity and meaning. Characters deal with confronting emotions, escaping expectations and deciphering complicated relationships.

Seeking strong, diverse actors with excellent vocal abilities. Looking for unique voice qualities with a pop sensibility. Must have a great ear for advanced harmonies.
