A new musical by Philip Goodman & Ray Leslee.
"A Good Man is a beautiful, honestly written musical story about grace under enormous pressure, so deceptively simple that it rings starkly true, with great impact on all of us. Grace is powerfully evident in the character of our hero whose white house is a vision of what all of life might be, were he able to pursue his dreams.
Ray Leslee's powerful music cultivates seam after seam of blues, devotional tradition and nuance, and we not only hear these songs we can almost touch, taste and smell them, deep, rich, dark, and life-giving."
Philip Goodman's taut book and lyrics are miracles of quiet dignity and vivid expression; surprises abound, and they seem inevitable in retrospect, but we never see them coming.
-- Donna Trinkoff, Amas Artistic Producer, quoted in Broadway World.
