People like US

a new musical

by Todd Almond & Gus Kaikkonen

 

One man, one woman, both approaching 30, individually successful and impossibly in love.   How can two people be together when they're a world apart?

Pamela Bob and Matt Bogart star in this funny and poignant, award-winning piece by Todd Almond and Gus Kaikkonen.

Winner of the New Hampshire Theatre Award for Best New Play

Pamela Bob has received recognition for BEST PERFORMANCE BY A LEADING ACTRESS in the 2005 NY Musical Theatre Festival for her performance in "People Like US."

"A vividly fascinating...tour of the beautiful landscape of the human heart."
-Matthew Murray, Talkin' Broadway

"Pamela Bob and Matt Bogart keep interest high throughout the evening and Almond's lush music is easy listening, often reaching high peaks of drama. Among the songs that stand out in this lengthy score are 'Sky Above Manhattan,''Who Will You Kiss on New Year's?,' and the title song."
-Victor Gluck, Backstage

"The story of Matt and Pamela is one of love lost, then found, and eventually, painstakingly, re-examined. Along the way, there are observations made as to the nature and relativity of success, the entertainment industry, science
and universities. Not perhaps the stuff of a typical musical, but in the masterful hands of Almond and Kaikkonen, all combine with song and dance to keep the plot moving forward at a brisk, but comfortably comic pace."
-Joe Bills, Monadnock Ledger
