In SOUL SEARCHING, Brenda, a single New Yorker living on the Upper West Side, somehow finds herself on a comedic and poignant search for her soul-mate with help from her three married friends, all engulfed in relationship troubles of their own.
Her journey has just begun...
Starting in January 2004, The New Rock Musical SOUL SEARCHING wowed audiences throughout the Tri-State area and beyond in sold-out workshops, productions, and in-concert presentations at Theater for the New City, The 45th Street Theater, the Times Square Arts Center, and two appearances in the New York Musical Theater Festival. Additional concert versions were developed at NYC venues as varied as The Nuyorican Poets Cafe, The DR2 Theater, D-Lounge, Bowery Poetry Club, Drom, The Tank, and many others.
Now, for the first time since September 2009, an updated and revised SOUL SEARCHING finally returns, potentially starting redevelopment for new audiences in a new era...
