More than any other popular songwriter in recent memory, Harry Chapin was a storyteller. He celebrated the extraordinary lives of ordinary folk, and whether through comedy or pathos, reminded us of a shared emotional heritage. Here, the most inherently theatrical of Chapin's narrative pieces have been assembled, allowing the stories within them to dictate their own dramatic shape.
Original production by Joseph Stern, Sandi, Stephen & Tom Chapin.
