At 2 pm on Saturday, July 24th, The Park Theatre and Write Act Repertory, artistically directed by John Lant, performed songs from Eric Sirota’s latest musical, A Good Day, at Ellsworth Park as a part of Union City’s free outdoor concert series.
The concert was put on in association with Mayor Brian Stack and the Union City Board of commissioners in addition to the Alzheimer’s Association’s Longest Day.
Eric Sirota’s A Good Day is about a widowed artist who finds himself brought back into the life of his childhood girlfriend that spurned him years ago and now has Alzheimer’s.
In addition to A Good Day, the concert also featured songs from Sirota’s Off-Broadway productions Frankenstein, Your Name on My Lips, and Go, My Child.
Sirota has opted to participate with The Longest Day in memory of his father, Dr. Milton Sirota, and to advance the care, support, and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association in honor of those who have been diagnosed with the disease; to make a donation in honor of this concert, visit http://act.alz.org/goto/AGoodDayMusical.
