When composer Gordon Schwinn collapses into a plate of ziti, he is told he has a devastating brain disease that may take his life. With time running short, he strives to write the perfect song while his brain plays hilarious tricks on him. This delightful, heartwarming musical from the composer of THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE and one of the writers of INTO THE WOODS features catchy tunes, heartfelt moments, and a guy in a frog suit. It's the perfect way to celebrate the gifts of heart and music.
