When was the last time you called your best friend from grade school?

Story of My life CoverRon came home from a long car trip (without me) and started talking about a couple of his friends that he had lost contact with and resolvied to atone for that.  I knew he must have listened to the copy of The Story of My Life that was in the car.

The show basically tells the story of two friends who meet as quirky children and develop a life-long friendship that ends in unfortunate drift.

The CD is an excercise in pure charm, featuring terrific performances by Malcolm Getz and Will chase.  Ben Brantley’s review of the show in the NYTimes was not what one would call positive.  And what is personal and touching when played on an iPod directly into your head may very well be unbearable on-stage.

However, this show has a plethora of material just waiting to be exploted on the cabaret stage — Justin Ritchie, The Butterfly is waiting for you!

BTW, Ron keeps listening to the CD in the car.
