"A warm-hearted coming of age story with a stirring score." --DAILY NEWS

The place and time: Rural West Virginia, 1962. Fourteen year-old Pete’s fighting to claim his past. His older brother Jake’s hoping to forge a future. With an eclectic band of friends teetering on the brink of adulthood, they’ve embarked on a life-altering journey to the coalmine that took their father’s life. With its soaring, elegiac bluegrass and pop-inspired score, this inspirational new musical finds both the streaks of light and the heart of darkness within us all. The album features performances by original cast members Michael Park, Charlie Brady, Al Calderon, Andrew Durand, Noah Galvin, Steve French and Randy Redd.

The Burnt Part Boys ran Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons from April 30th to June 13th, 2010. The show was produced in conjunction with the Vineyard Theatre. Joe Calarco provided direction and musical staging. Music direction by Vadim Feichtner, set by Brian Prather, costumes by Elizabeth Flauto, lighting by Chris Lee, and Sound design by Lindsay Jones
