Tony Award® Nominee Nancy Opel (Urinetown) returns to the New York stage in Curvy Widow. Based on a true story, this sassy and witty musical follows the daily exploits of a feisty fifty-something whose adventures inspire laughter and, in the least expected places — reveal truths about life, love, and sex. From surviving hilarious first dates, to her intimate conquests, this widow navigates her way through it all with humor and perseverance. Featuring a brilliant cast of best friends, a dead husband, and a myriad of potential suitors — Curvy learns the hard way what it means to start life over in the modern age.
Book by Bobby Goldman; music and lyrics by Drew Brody (Broadway: Oh Hello; Cutman), and directed by Peter Flynn (Rhapsody in Seth; Two Rooms).
