This week Chris is playing clarinet, bass clarinet and alto sax in the Dan School production of Goodbye Paris.
Performed by students from the Music Theatre Internship course at the Dan School of Drama and Music, Goodbye Paris is a brand-new musical written by veteran creators Paul Ledoux and John Roby, and directed by Eda Holmes with musical direction by Darrell Bryan. The play focuses on The Lost Generation and characters “lost in the shadows” of the iconic figures of Hemingway and the Fitzgeralds. Our characters are young, ambitious and entangled in a complex web of conflicts driven by the corrosive power of fame and confused sexual identities. They live in a narcissistic community feeding off of each other’s lives to create their art. Everyone is on the make. Everyone is falling in love with the wrong person. It’s a laugh riot until a long simmering conflict between Hemingway and his former lover Robert McAlmon knocks their world sideways. And the comedy gets a little darker…
