“I miss those great musicals that had me singing their songs after I left the theater”
“Why doesn’t Broadway have more original musicals that aren’t about historical people or music stars of the past?”
Jeff and Shannon Pasternak, agreed, hearing these comments over and over again from avid theatergoers. So they wrote THE HOLLYWOOD SURVIVOR. Twenty original songs and choreography that will have you rocking, laughing, snapping your fingers and even shedding a tear or two along the way. And, of course, this musical production promises to bring back those electrifying entertaining moments a Broadway show is meant to do.
THE HOLLYWOOD SURVIVOR is a whimsical humorous story of young musician, Jesse Lucas, who only wants to write songs and still lives in the family mansion. His father, Alan, is just as determined and persistent that Jesse forget his music and join him in his lucrative corporation. Alea, mother and wife, wants her husband to retire and finally keep his word on that promised world cruise.
A lavish 25th wedding aniversary party sparks a bombshell for all. Jesse leaves for Hollywood and Alea packs her bag to find a new life. Alan is left to plot a plan to get back his family.
And so begins THE HOLLYWOOD SURVIVOR. While the songs and music drive this musical forward, the play weaves a cast of colorful characters throughout the story’s twists and turns and leads to a show-stopping finale.
