Description

Full Length Musical

Dramatic Comedy

A pop folk opera about small town life in America during the early days of World War II produced in New York by Joseph Papp.
"Like Our Town, which it resembles in so many ways, The Human Comedy concerns life and death and growing up in a small community... Along with its poignancy and heartfelt feeling for home, the adaptation captures Saroyan's joie de vivre ." - Christian Science Monitor "Funny, charming and touching... a stirring flight of musical fancy... This has to be the most inspired, inventive and downright pleasurable music to grace Broadway in a long, long time." - WCBS TV "MacDermot's plain, open faced style [is] a melange of jazz, rock, and gospel... [and] ideally suited to the sturdy values of familial love, courage and patriotism that Saroyan so sentimentally celebrated." - Newsweek
