Mission

Chromolume Theatre’s name comes from the Stephen Sondheim/James Lapine musical, Sunday in the Park with George, about an artist struggling to make art meaningful in 19th Century France. Chromolume Theatre was founded by two struggling artists in 2003 with its primary mission to present the American musical on an intimate level in an entertaining, intellectually stimulating and emotionally satisfying way. With growth and change, Chromolume Theatre’s mission has evolved with a new dedication to presenting Broadway’s forgotten gems and off-Broadway’s undiscovered treasured, and shining a light on productions that deserve a second look. Chromolume Theatre also provides opportunity for artists to shine who have not had such an opportunity in the past, as well as a dedication to diverse and multi-cultural casts and crews.

***2018 HOLLYWOOD FRINGE FESTIVAL PRODUCTION***

Chromolume Theatre returns to the Hollywood Fringe Festival in 2018, with this intimate one-act musical that candidly explores the simplicity of human need and the complexity of emotions under which it lies buried.

The Story of My Life follows the friendship of Alvin and Thomas, two men from a small town. These lifelong friends are reunited after Alvin’s mysterious death. In the abstract world of his mind, Thomas struggles to write Alvin’s eulogy while recounting the many turns that their lives have taken since meeting as children. Alvin searches through the manuscripts and stories in Thomas’ mind to lead him on a journey of remembrance. Through music and song, these two friends recount their adventures, explore their past dissonance and ultimately discover what is at the base of every strong friendship… love.

The Story of My Life was written by composer-lyricist Neil Bartram and librettist Brian Hill and was nominated for four Drama Desk Awards, including Outstanding Musical. The Story of My Life inspires us to reconnect with those who were part of the earliest chapters of our own life stories.
