MID-LIFE 2! #WhatDidIComeInHereFor?

The follow up to the hilarious MID-LIFE! The Crisis Musical, MID-LIFE 2! #WhatDidIComeInHereFor? takes us back into the middle ages once again with a hilariously tuneful look at the aches, pains, and joys of getting older. From ever-increasing trips to the doctor’s office, to the horrifying moment when one qualifies for a senior discount, the ever-growing legion of aging Baby Boomers and beyond are sure to see their lives reflected in this brand new, witty musical revue.

Set Requirements

As in MID-LIFE! the Crisis Musical, the set should be an attractive, functional "revue" format, to enable the quick changing of locations. We have also retained the use of screens that project the title of the upcoming song/scene. Perhaps after a song or scene has begun, a color is projected to allow the screens to blend into the set - or perhaps they revert to an image of an eye chart or the show logo.

The Cast

Three men and three women, all in various ranges of their middle years. With some clever adjustments and reassignment of roles and vocal parts, the show can be done with three men and two women.


Presently, the show is scored for a solo pianist who is on stage.
