Flight of the Lawnchair Man

Based on a concept by Robert Lindsey

Meet Jerry Gorman.  A regular guy from New Jersey who just wants to fly.  The neighbors think he’s nuts.  His mother disapproves.  But Gracie believes in him.  Laugh and cheer when Jerry soars to 16,000 feet with nothing but a lawnchair and helium balloons.  A new musical to remind the world that the air is free and dreams can come true if only you believe in yourself.
