A promising star plucked from the new breed of composers in America,
Adam Gwon is the latest winner of the Fred Ebb Award for Excellence in Musical Theater Songwriting.
With Ordinary Days, Adam hit the boards running in the USA and the UK,
causing critics to sit up and take notice of its spare, fast-paced and lyrical form.
From the bustling streets to the quiet rooftops,
four young New Yorkers trying to find their way become intricately connected through a
series of funny and fortuitous events that prove ordinary days can be simply extraordinary.
"From one of musical theatre’s most exciting new composers comes ORDINARY DAYS,
a refreshingly honest and funny musical about making real connections in the city that never sleeps.
ORDINARY DAYS tells the story of four young New Yorkers whose lives intersect as they search for fulfillment, happiness, love and cabs.
Through a score of vibrant and memorable songs, their experiences ring startlingly true to life.
ORDINARY DAYS is an original musical for anyone who’s ever struggled to appreciate the simple things in a complex place. "
Adam's musical Ordinary Days was produced in the
2009-10 season at Roundabout Theatre Company,
South Coast Repertory, Adirondack Theatre Festival, and Human Race Theatre Company.
Ordinary Days was previously produced at Pennsylvania Centre Stage,
the Finborough Theatre in London, and at universities across the country,
and was selected for the 2008 NAMT Festival of New Musicals.
Videos on this page are from various productions of the show as well as performances of individual
songs in cabarets and showcases.
