THE NOTEWORTHY LIFE OF HOWARD BARNES

The Noteworthy Life of Howard Barnes

Howard Barnes is a perfectly average American man. That is, until the day that he wakes up to discover that his life has become a musical. Desperate to escape from the show, Howard embarks on a fantastical quest through the realm of musical theater. Equal parts satire, romantic comedy, and love letter to the American musical, The Noteworthy Life of Howard Barnes is intended for people who love musical theater, and their spouses who hate it.

THE NOTEWORTHY LIFE OF HOWARD BARNES received its world premiere at Village Theatre during the 2018-2019 season.
