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.

An original uplifting musical, about a widowed artist who is thrust back into the life of his childhood girlfriend, his first love, his muse, a musician who spurned him over 50 years ago, and who now suffers from Alzheimer’s.

 Sam, an artist, is a widower after losing his wife of 50 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.
