Son of a Stand Up ComedianSSUC

April 15 - May 9, 2010
Music and Lyrics by Paul Scott Goodman
Book by Paul Scott Goodman and Miriam Gordon
Directed by Michael Baron

Starring the acclaimed singer/ songwriter Paul Scott Goodman.  An authentic Scottish Jewish guitar playing rocker, Goodman tells the story of living and surviving the Soho music scene in the '80s; as an artist, a lover and, ultimately, a father.  The "son of a stand-up comedian," Goodman's songs tell a story of love and hope, a story due in no small part to Arthur Miller.  With wry wit and uncompromising honesty, Son of a Stand Up Comedian captures the unique sights and sounds, challenges and complexities of life as an artist in Manhattan.  Goodman returns to MetroStage after his award-winning musical, ROOMS, a rock romance, premiered here last season.
