Chromolume Theatre returns to the Hollywood Fringe Festival in 2018, with this intimate one-act musical that candidly explores the simplicity of human need and the complexity of emotions under which it lies buried.
The Story of My Life follows the friendship of Alvin and Thomas, two men from a small town. These lifelong friends are reunited after Alvin’s mysterious death. In the abstract world of his mind, Thomas struggles to write Alvin’s eulogy while recounting the many turns that their lives have taken since meeting as children. Alvin searches through the manuscripts and stories in Thomas’ mind to lead him on a journey of remembrance. Through music and song, these two friends recount their adventures, explore their past dissonance and ultimately discover what is at the base of every strong friendship… love.
The Story of My Life was written by composer-lyricist Neil Bartram and librettist Brian Hill and was nominated for four Drama Desk Awards, including Outstanding Musical. The Story of My Life inspires us to reconnect with those who were part of the earliest chapters of our own life stories.
