210 Amlent Avenue is a new musical about searching for family and coming to terms with the past.

The story follows retired actress Mrs. Jordan as she throws a get-together for friends to pay their respects to her recently-deceased husband, the famous Broadway director. Everything changes when Judah, a young friend of the family, shows up seeking answers about his own dead parents.

“I found the music to be quite involved and emotionally stirring and the lyrics surprisingly realistic. More than just rhymey and in-timey, they actually sounded like things people would say in casual conversation. I dare say the larger groups numbers evoked Stephen Sondheim in their musical complexity – needless to say, I was titillated. …[T]he quick-witted dialogue and sharply drawn characters keep this piece from tumbling into superficiality and… all in all, I was thoroughly engrossed and entertained.”     –Brian-Paul Mendoza, reviewing the 2014 NYMF reading

Put another way: when you cross August: Osage County with A Little Night Music and mix in some of Next to Normal and Ibsen’s Ghosts, you get 210 Amlent Avenue. You can hear the writers describe the story in this video and check out their behind-the-scenes blog for an insider look at the production process.
