The Ironworkers' Hayride
A one-act musical. Libretto by Pulitzer prize winner Robert Olen Butler Music by Emmy Award winner Lanny Meyers A bashful clerk is coerced into a blind date for the hayride with an attractive young suffragette, who happens to have a wooden leg. Romance, comedy, plus a delightfully uproarious surprise ending.
“From speaking with them, I knew these folks were good. But I had no idea how good. The musical version of my story ‘The Ironworkers’ Hayride’ (from my collection Had a Good Time) was glorious…My deep thanks to all those involved; Lanny Meyers who composed 65 minutes of ravishing music and contributed additional lyrics to the libretto, which was essentially every word of the story. We seek to go on, planning now to add a second act based on one more story from the book, to expand the running time to full On-/Off-Broadway length.”
