Sextet: A Love Story for Everyone
Music and lyrics by Chad Hardin
Book by Bradley Dean
Based on an original story by Chad Hardin
Directed by Lenore Shapiro
A new musical by composer and Shoreline resident Chad Hardin, Sextet is a love story for everyone, meaning that within the interlocking relationships of our six characters (3 men, 3 women), you are sure to find your love story.
Sextet takes a look — a smiling, deeply compassionate look — at the mysterious and fascinating nature of human relationships, and at the true meaning of Love. Don’t miss this exciting world-premiere production.
“Sextet has many of the elements that I tend to look for — a fresh approach to a unique story, rich and compelling characters, a smart sense of humor, and, most importantly, that it absolutely needs to be a musical — that the passions and sorrows and inner lives of the characters are so big and overwhelming that they can be expressed in no other way. I believe the authors have made a significant contribution to the form with this show, and that it deserves to find a wide audience.”
— Steven Tabikin, Producer (The Public Theatre, Tashtego Films)
