SONGS BY MICHAEL FRIEDMAN & JENNY SCHWARTZ
DIRECTED BY ANNE KAUFFMAN

I COULD MAKE YOU MY FAVORITE OMELET.
ALTHOUGH I’D RATHER NOT BREAK ANY LEGS.
When tragedy strikes Mel and Ted, words fail them.

She conjures up the Tooth Fairy.
He spends more time in the airport lounge.

Lanie asks questions.
Everyone sings wistful songs.

And then… a glimmer.

“a formally inventive and superbly performed drama… making a rather old-fashioned case for the power of the written word.” – The New York Times

“What is revolutionary is Schwartz’s ability to make linguistic gamesmanship into something profoundly moving… It’s a remarkable event, a rare piece of total theater. Take it from my lips: go to GOD’S EAR.” – Time Out New York

“It is rare these days that I go and see a play whose voice is so distinct and progressive that I leave the theater with a glimmer of hope for a new theatrical voice for the 21st century. I wish I had a copy of the script so I could better set forth what I was talking about (I also wish I had a copy so I could read it all the time).” – theatre conversation and political frustration

“A playwright to reckon with.” – The Village Voice
