Big City Life, Love & Music
Giving Tree's first musical is an adorable story of four New Yorkers whose lives intersect as they search for fulfillment, happiness, and love! From one of musical theatre's most exciting new composers comes ORDINARY DAYS, a refreshingly honest and funny musical about making real connections in the city that never sleeps (but probably should at some point.)
Through a score of vibrant and memorable songs, their experiences ring startlingly true to life. With equal doses of humor and poignancy, it celebrates how 8.3 million individual stories combine in unexpected ways to make New York City such a unique and extraordinary home. (PG-13 for periodically sung adult language, Musical Comedy)

--Show Business Weekly
"DELIGHTFUL, INSIGHTFUL... It is so honest -- so down to earth and heart-felt -- you'll love it."
--Long Beach Gazette
"FRESH, FUNNY, and TRUE... It's a play that re-invigorates you, reminds you that this, this is what living is all about. The songwriting was remarkable -- catchy, but conversational...it truly was life set to music."
