EDGES: A Song Cycle December 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14

A contemporary song-cycle about young adults at the metaphorical edge of their lives.

Edges is not a traditional musical; it is an exciting show about four burgeoning adults asking classic coming-of-age questions. Written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul in their sophomore year at the University of Michigan, this contemporary song cycle is charming, witty and an honest examination of adulthood.


The songs cover such universal issues as love, commitment, identity, and meaning. Characters deal with confronting emotions, escaping expectations, and deciphering complicated relationships.
