Starring the acclaimed singer/songwriter Paul Scott Goodman. An authentic Scottish Jewish guitar playing rocker, Goodman tells his story of an artist’s struggle to live and survive as a writer, performer, lover and, ultimately, a father in the searing hot summer of Manhattan 1988. Goodman’s songs tell a story of love and hope with wry wit and uncompromising honesty, capturing the unique sights and sounds, challenges and complexities of life as a songwriter and performer in New York City.
The “son of a stand up comedian,” Goodman’s songs tell a story of love and hope, a story due in no small part to Arthur Miller. With wry wit and uncompromising honesty, Son of a Stand Up Comedian captures the unique sights and sounds, challenges and complexities of life as an artist in Manhattan. Goodman returns to MetroStage after his award-winning musical ROOMS, a rock romance which premiered at MetroStage last season and moved to GEVA in Rochester NY and to New World Stages Off Broadway.
