The first musical by Robbie Schaefer
Following the recent trend for musicians getting a piece of Broadway musical action (think Sting's The Last Ship, and Gary Barlow's Finding Neverland), the latest entry into this canon is a touching and humorous musical by Robbie Schaefer of the acclaimed folk/rock/indie band Eddie From Ohio , starring Bobby Smith. A partially auto-biographical portrait of his early years in India, and moving to the USA as a child, we also get a rare glimpse into his often fraught relationship with his father, as well as uncovering his father's tragic past.
An autobiographical journey across time
Spanning across the decades from childhood to today, we travel along the long road to maturity with Robbie as he traverses immigration, his close bond with his father, and finally raising a family of his own, through beautiful folk-rock music, and the inventive lyrics
that made him a household name with his band. Written over the course of 2015/16, Schaefer's musical is a highly anticipated event, and is an absolute must-see for fans of his musical talents.
