Music by Galt MacDermot
Words by William Dumaresq from an original story by William Saroyan
A tale of heroism in a small town in southern California during World War Two. Young Homer delivers telegrams of love, joy and the sorrows of war. His mother prays for the safe return of his brother from the front line. His sister dreams that she too could fight for her country.
The Human Comedy is a timeless coming-of age story that celebrates the healing power of community and the unifying spirit of song. The exuberant score of swing, gospel, pop and folk is delivered with explosive energy by a professional cast enhanced by an ensemble of over eighty community performers.
This 70s hit has music by Galt MacDermot whose groundbreaking Hair has enjoyed a thrilling West End revival.
The show played at both Watford Palace Theatre and Young Vic in September 2010.
