“I never really knew what I was like until I quit smoking, by which time there was hell to pay.” So observes Charlotte, a young writer of short stories as she confronts her past, present and future in post-9/11 Manhattan. With the help of her well-intentioned friends, Charlotte embarks on a modern-day odyssey as she desperately attempts to fill her nicotine-starved days with swimming at the Y and jogging but to no avail. She’s a stranger in her own body, and it’s not a pretty thing–flashbacks to earlier years when she first arrived in New York bump up uncomfortably with her present. As opposed to swimming against the tide, alone and without direction, Charlotte realizes that sometimes, like little fish, it’s smarter and safer to swim with the school.
3F, 4M, 1 Girl (Doubling)
"A stylish, lively new musical about what it means to feel lifeless in contemporary Manhattan. Mr. LaChiusa’s score proceeds to blend the jazzy, noirish feel of what is conventionally called the symphony of the city."
New York Times
"There is so much wonderful writing in the ninety minutes—the lyrics are wittily pointed and elegantly formed; the music inventively bends standard melodic patterns into unexpected shapes. LaChiusa is sharp with observation, generous with compassion, and able to evoke volumes of experience in the flick of a single phrase."
