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
want you to explore what happens when we are teetering on the edges!

The Violinist, a painting by Russian artist Marc Chagall (1887-1985), depicting a fiddler on the roof of a small house, gave the creators the idea for the title of Fiddler on the Roof.
