Lucy and the Circumstances — Chapter 1

Adam Groden

Show Information:

Lucy Duggan is a young woman at a crossroads. Should she stay with the band she leads or continue her studies in psychology? To complicate matters, Lucy has learned that she has multiple sclerosis and her parents’ marriage has come to a nasty end. During one eventful day, Lucy has to deal with friends, family, and romantic entanglements – and a band contest – pulling her in conflicting directions. The music is jazzpopbluesrock, a mix of styles that complements the funny/serious nature of the show, presented by a dynamic four-piece band fronted by three singers. Lucy and the Circumstances is a serious musical comedy presented in 1-act 1-hour episodes – a musical serial. This is Chapter 1. Get in on the first chapter of this exciting story!

    This musical is called Lucy and the Circumstances but we spend a tone of time on her father’s own issues and very little time on Lucy. The music does not drive the plot in music, lyric or tempo. The part of Lucy’s mother steals the show and she has a great song. I hope that if this show continues in further chapters that we get to focus on Lucy and her troubles. Acting was great in some parts very weak in others. Vocals overall were good but as with most Rock Musicals balance was off between the singers and the band.
