A Good Day
a new musical
music, book & lyrics by
Eric B. Sirota
Music, memory, an old flame and Alzheimer’s – You just hope for a good day.
A widowed artist, finds himself brought into the life of his childhood girlfriend, his first love, his muse, a musician who spurned him over 50 years ago, and who now has Alzheimer’s.
Paint the sunrise in your mind.
Remember music left behind.
Untangle memories intertwined.
Don’t let the sun down.
Sam, an artist, is a widower after losing his wife of 45 years. After a year, he still has not regained his will to paint, or do much of anything.
Years ago in her youth, Suzanna, a musician, instilled the love of music in her artist friend. But she gave up the cello and music, and gave up that young man who loved her. She moved on with her life and eventually he did too.
Now, 50 years later, Suzanna has Alzheimer’s, and her children would do anything to hear their mother speak their names.
