Edges


Music and Lyrics by  Justin Paul and Benj Pasek


One Act, Revue, Pop / Rock, Rated PG-13


A contemporary song-cycle about young adults at the metaphorical edge of their lives.

EDGES
is not a traditional musical; it is an exciting new show about four burgeoning adults asking classic coming-of-age questions. Written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul--2007 Jonathan Larson Award Recipients--in their sophomore year at the University of Michigan, this contemporary song cycle carries an honest voice advocating introspection while maintaining wit and charm.

The songs cover such universal issues as love, commitment, identity, and meaning. Characters deal with confronting emotions, escaping expectations, and deciphering complicated relationships. While the show is written for four performers, EDGES can easily be performed by multiple men and women.

Encouraging experimental productions, Pasek & Paul want you to explore what happens when we are teetering on the edges!
