Bookends: A Musical Journey
Through song and improvisation, Bookends follows two people’s relationship as it changes over time, delving into life and the intricacies of human connection. Inspired by the non-linear work of Jason Robert Brown, one side of the story unfolds backwards, while the other progresses forward, meeting briefly in the middle before continuing on. Each show, the audience helps establish the parameters of the characters’ relationship, then the actors create a completely original musical narrative.
Bookends is a heartfelt, improvised journey featuring theatrical musical improvisors Diana DiCostanzo (New York City) and Clay Robeson (San Francisco).
