Post Roundabout Underground Musicals: ORDINARY DAYS
Playbill has details about a new musical called ORDINARY DAYS, which is the first musical to be produced as a part of the Roundabout Underground initiative:

Kenneth Jones wrote:
Lisa Brescia, Tony Award nominee Hunter Foster, Jared Gertner and Kate Wetherhead will star in the New York City premiere of songwriter Adam Gwon's Ordinary Days — a musical about four New Yorkers connected by circumstance.... Featuring music and lyrics by Gwon, and directed by Marc Bruni, Ordinary Days is billed this way: "From the bustling streets to the quiet rooftops, Ordinary Days tells the story of four young New Yorkers whose lives are unexpectedly interconnected by circumstance. The series of funny and fortuitous events in this intimate, fast-paced musical proves that ordinary days can be simply extraordinary."

I think the concept for the show itself sounds interesting, but the initiative, which is "to showcase new plays that will either allow an experienced director to go back to his/her creative roots or give a debut production to an emerging writer or director" is a brilliant one.

I really like the sound of this one. :) I'm looking forward to some of these new musicals! This, Fela! and White Noise all sound really interesting.
