Pasek and Paul - Edges: A Song Cycle

Justin and Benj

Edges is a song cycle that confronts the trials and tribulations of moving into adulthood and examines the search for love, commitment and meaning. It was originally written by Benj and Justin when they were students at the University of Michigan and has since had dozens of amateur and professional productions throughout the United States, Canada and Europe.

Capital Repertory Theatre in Albany, NY presented the professional premiere of Edges in October, 2007. The cast included Stephen Booth (Glory Days and Las Vegas' Avenue Q), Colin Hanlon (Rent and Off-Broadway's I Love You Because), Whitney Bashor (Off-Broadway's The Fantasticks) and Farah Alvin (Nine, The Look of Love; Off-Broadway's I Love You Because and Paper Mill and Goodspeed's Pirates).

Here is the official songlist from the Edges debut in Albany:

  • Become
  • Monticello

  • I Hmm You
  • Along the Way
