Beyond the Close: Brush Strokes the Musical

GTS Alumnus, the Rev. Stephen Chinlund, reports to us that he has co-written the musical, Brush Strokes, A Roller-Coaster Musical about Art, Love and Growing Older. The play is being presented as part of the Thespis Theater Festival this September. BRUSH STROKES reveals the journeys of Virginia and Eric who find new love late in their lives; brought together by their passion for art, yet challenged by seemingly irreconcilable differences. Compromise may be key to their romance, but will it be enough and at what cost? BRUSH STROKES is certain to have a durable impact long after the last note is sung.

"The play is about the special joy of falling in love later in life. I have written it in the hope that audiences will be encouraged to swim against the rid of our culture and believe that old age, with romance, new friends, new art, and a new sense of freedom and peach is averrable to all of us. For many, the best is yet to come!"
