Write Act Repertorys Producing Artistic Director John Lant presents the theatrical musical production of critically acclaimed composer Wayne Moores FREEWAY DREAMS, a fantastical dreamy musical comedy idling as a limited engagement at Write Act Reps new home in North Hollywood, with Press Opening Weekend beginning May 19, 2017 running through
closing, Sunday June 11, 2017.
Commuters, stuck in freeway traffic, wait for the gridlock to disperse begin to daydream, their dreams emerging through songs such as Manic-Depressive Blues, A Big Woman Needs A Big Man, ...And A Pizza To Go, and My Superman' hitting the mark in satirizing the L.A. lifestyle.
Moore states that he wrote the show about an optimistic L.A. Sound bizarre? Its anything but. The show is about people stuck on the freeway, and the fantasies they have in their lives. Actually, theyre stuck so long they end up in each others fantasies, so theres lots of funny stuff.
FREEWAY DREAMS was originally staged as a cabaret show that ran for five months at the Gardenia, and now premiering as a full theatrical production here at our new home and I could not be happier. The songs are infectious and I cant get them out of my head, states Producing Artistic Director Lant. I am proud that we have this amazing creative talented team of artists helmed by, always clever, director Jim Blanchette. Wayne brought us the project on Oscar weekend and we played this on tv breaks falling in love with this right away. Unlike traffic you dont have to hurry up and wait its here.
