Details: This autobiographical 1998 musical from Tony Award winner William Finn (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) is a medical tragedy as seen through the iris of a Looney Tunes short. After struggling composer Gordon Michael Schwinn (Tony Award nominee Jonathan Groff) collapses at the piano, he is diagnosed with a brain tumor and is forced to come to terms with his creative ambitions and the people in his life: an overbearing mother (Ana Gasteyer), a ruthless kiddie-show host (Tony Award winner Dan Fogler), and a boyfriend who’d “rather be sailing” (Aaron Lazar).
