Ed Kleban: Words and music - I love them. And especially what happens when you put them together into songs. And sing them in a large building, in a central part of town, in a dark room, as part of a play, with a lot of people listening, who have all paid a great deal to get in!
A darkened theatre, New York City, 1988. Friends gather for the memorial of one of Broadway’s greatest – but least known – music makers. He was the man who wrote the lyrics “One Singular Sensation” for “A Chorus Line” and nothing could have described him better. Nominated for the Best Musical Tony Award and featuring music Stephen Sondheim said he “wishes he’d written,” it is the moving and emotionally charged true story of turning your life into art. You are about to meet Edward Kleban - a gentleman, a genius, a pain in the butt, A Class Act!
