What We Wanted - Off-Broadway

Set in a small college town in Ohio, What We Wanted is a new play about a three-person marriage struggling to stay intact as forces inside and out tear it apart. Julian is a professor, whose sexual relationship with his mentee causes strife as she files a suit for misconduct. Agnes receives a promotion to become editor of the magazine she works for but must move away from her family in order to accept. Sally helps her daughter's boyfriend, Dale, study for the GED, but crosses boundaries with the frail young man and Reggie exacts revenge on her mother for abandoning her to live with Agnes and Julian.

The first song we (Stephen Libby and I) wrote for the show was 'Dark Paradise' - and it was one of the quickest. We knew what we wanted to say. We started it in a park, then ran home to get to the piano. The last was 'Happy Hour'. The first was easy, perhaps an evening - the last took us months. We wrote four different versions, none of which fit. I think every hour spent thinking about 'Happy Hour' was by the piano - in retrospect, fresh air and pacing is a game-changer. Highly recommended.

The saying, 'Good things come to those who wait,' could certainly be applied to the world premiere of The Good Swimmer playing at BAM's Fishman Space as part of the Next Wave festival from November 28th-December 1st. Defined as a pop requiem for the youth of the Vietnam War, this collaboration between Heidi Rodewald (music) and Donna Di Novelli (lyrics) directed by Kevin Newbury has been the better part of a decade in the making since the two women began working on the piece at a Eugene O'Neill Theater Center residency and left with three songs based on text from out-of-print lifesaving manuals that would become the foundation of The Good Swimmer -- the title song, 'Red Cross' and 'Double Drowning'.

When I was younger I never quite understood the hype surrounding the end of a year and the start of a new one. The traditions of counting down the last minute of New Year's Eve, making loud noises and yells when the clock struck twelve, engaging in champagne toasts with my family are moments of this precious holiday that I took part in, but I never really grasped the beauty behind why we do these things, and what they really mean.
