The setting is during a blackout during 1965 in the northeast: it's a "metaphysical" musical.
Will Connolly and Michael Mitnick have created a catchy score for the musical Fly by Night, now playing at the Coronado Playhouse.
It’s being described as a comic rock fable that “portrays a melancholy sandwich maker’s humdrum life and how it is intersected by two entrancing sisters, weaving into its overlapping love stories a resonating message about how the ‘invisible universe’ connects us all.”
The setting is during a blackout during 1965 in the northeast.
The New York Times says, “The ways in which these people…intersect are meant to evoke a cosmic pattern, a sense of the invisible connective tissue that underlies the mundane…The score flirts with early rock ’n’ roll, as well as recurrent motifs that are guaranteed to take up longtime residence in your ear.”
And Time Out New York says it’s, “Wistful earnestness is a nice mode for a musical—especially a sweet-natured romantic fable such as Fly by Night.”
Written by Will Connolly, Michael Mitnick, and Kim Rosenstock.
