A scene from “Ordinary Days” with cast members looking at a painting on a wallIndiana University of Pennsylvania's Theater-by-the-Grove and Music Theater will present a co-production musical, Ordinary Days by Adam Gwon. The production is directed by Rob Gretta and music directed by Oliver Lo. The recorded performances will be streamed virtually on April 22-25, 2021.

Ordinary Days tells the story of four young New Yorkers whose lives intersect as they search for fulfillment, happiness, love, and taxis. It is an original musical for anyone who has ever struggled to appreciate the simple things in a complex world. With equal doses of humor and poignancy, it celebrates how 8.3 million individual stories combine in unexpected ways to make New York City such a unique and extraordinary home.

Streamed tickets are priced at $7.50 for active I-Card users; $10 for regular admission; and $20 for group viewing. Tickets for the performance are available for purchase online.
