My Life at the Theater: Sideman
I saw SIDEMAN twice. The first time was in New York at the John Golden Theater in 1999 with Andrew McCarthy, Michael O'Keefe and Kevin Geer. It concerns the life of a jazz trumpet player, but one who never achieved stardom. It also concerned his failures as a a husband and father.
It was on Broadway for almost two years.
I saw in again in 2006 at the Hilberry Theater in Detroit.
I can't remember being that taken with it the first time, but we probably had season tickets at the Hilberry that year.
