what the critics are saying

“A heartfelt musical with an emotional pull”
–Associated Press

“This year's most underappreciated Broadway musical, an unabashed, irresistible tearjerker.”
–USA Today

“There's a high level of craft, the lyrics being literate and full of detail, and the music often appropriately intense and always rich in emotion... The Story of My Life, with its story of friendship forged and frayed and fragmented, makes one think and feel deeply.”
–Talkin' Broadway

The Story of My Life
Original Broadway Cast Recording
Malcolm Gets & Will Chase

THE STORY OF MY LIFE is a Broadway rarity: an intimate musical that candidly explores the simplicity of human need and the complexity of emotions under which it lies buried. Tony nominee Malcolm Gets (Amour, A New Brain) and Will Chase (High Fidelity, Rent) star in this new musical that follows the contours of a lifelong friendship between two men, Alvin and Thomas, whose childhood bond threads throughout their adult years. Composer-lyricist Neil Bartram and librettist Brian Hill have created an authentic and affecting work, told through a series of songs – in turn playful, touching and dramatic, and expertly orchestrated by Jonathan Tunick.

One New York critic predicted, “When the original cast recording comes out, see if you don’t find yourself moved to Google the name of some long-lost friend with whom you simply lost touch.” THE STORY OF MY LIFE inspires us to reconnect with those who were part of the earliest chapters of our own life stories.
