The Memory Show
Music by Zach Redler and book & lyrics by Sara Cooper with cast members Catherine Cox (Baby, Footloose) and Leslie Kritzer (A Catered Affair, Rooms).
Showing up is half the battle…and then there’s the other half. When a daughter comes home to care for her aging mother, memory is only one land mine in the contemporary new musical. Conflicting versions of the past collide in this honest and darkly funny portrait of a mother, a daughter, and their inescapable relationship.
