A group gathers together to reminisce and reflect upon their careers, the changing times, and the trials of getting old.
Taking My Turn was one of the first musicals to deal with aging. The spoken words were collected from interviews with people in their prime.
"Irrepressibly young at heart. A life-enhancing musical evening" Mel Gussow, The New York Times
"A lovely, exultant showI had a great time!" Clive Barnes, The New York Post
