Common Grounds

Collisions in the daily grind…Eight million people. Eight million coffee houses. And eight million stories. An innovative dance musical set in a midtown coffee house that explores how, in the most mundane of places, we can intersect with, ricochet off and greatly impact each others lives. One incorrect order in the morning sets off a ripple effect that has dire consequences hours later.

This multimedia dance musical was commissioned by the New York Musical Theatre Festival.
