Synopsis

By the Tony-award winning authors of Falsettos, here is an energetic, sardonic, often comical musical about a composer during a medical emergency.  Gordon collapse into his lunch and awakes in the hospital surrounded by his maritime-enthusiast lover, his mother, a co-worker, the doctor and the nurses.  Reluctantly, he had been composing music for a children’s television show that features a frog – Mr. Bungee – and the spectre of this large green character and the unfinished work haunts him throughout his medical ordeal.  What was thought to be a tumor turns out to be something more operable and Gordon recovers, grateful for a chance to compose the songs he yearns to produce.
