Pasek and Paul's EDGES Plays On Broadway, 10/12-15
The award-winning musical EDGES will be at On Broadway for an exciting 'back by popular demand' run for 4 nights only. This contemporary song cycle explores the questions four young adults face as they come of age and seek simple truths in a complex world. With wit and charm, the musical vignettes follow them on a journey of confronting emotions, escaping expectation and deciphering complicated relationships.

EDGES is written by US-based Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who won the 2007 Jonathan Larson Award for the show. They also recently received this year's Richard Rodgers Award for Musical Theatre for their new show Dogfight. Rodgers' Awards nurture talented composers and playwrights by subsidising productions of their musicals in New York. This year's jury was chaired by Stephen Sondheim.
Presented by ROLSKA and BigLeaf Productions, the producers of last year's smash hit musical I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change, which won a Standard Bank Ovation Award at the National Arts Festival, EDGES is directed by the acclaimed director Paul Griffiths, with musical direction by Garth Tavares.
EDGES was a hit in Cape Town, performing to sold out houses at Kalk Bay Theatre earlier this year. It also featured on the Arena Platform at the National Arts Festival; where it stood out as a dynamic showcase.
