Age: It's only a number! BOOMER GIRL takes a fresh, funny, and sometimes poignant look at one woman working out the math when the digits involved are "5" and "0"! With book and lyrics by Jan Neuberger and music by Ben Cohn, the show has delighted audiences at New York City cabarets Don't Tell Mama and Mama Rose and at Connecticut's Ivoryton Playhouse. Jan, the Boomer Girl in question, is a veteran of decades of work on stages from Broadway, where she most recently appeared in WICKED and HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS (Grandma Who!), to our very own Playhouse on Park, where she starred as Kate in last season's BRIGHTON BEACH MEMOIRS. Now an undergraduate Creative Writing major at Trinity College-you never know where life's going to take you-Jan is on track to graduate with the class of '13! Yes, 50 is only a number, but it's one with unique resonance for a whole generation-and we're just getting started!

Musical direction by Colin Britt
