Adam Gwon's All the World's a Stage

The show tells the story of closeted Math teacher Ricky Alleman and the high school senior who cajoles him into coaching her for the 1996 State Thespian Competition with a monologue from "Angels in America". Soon, Ricky has trouble navigating his carefully compartmentalized life, between his outspoken new boyfriend and the conservative Principal of the High School where he teaches. All the World’s a Stage is a funny and heart-wrenching new musical about being true to yourself in a polarized world. Adam Gwon made his off-Broadway debut in 2009 with Ordinary Days at Roundabout Theatre Company; a 2018 revival by the Keen Company was nominated for a Drama League Award for Best Revival of a Broadway or Off-Broadway Musical. His musicals have been produced on six continents in more than half-a-dozen languages, including the Off-Broadway hits Scotland, PA (Roundabout Theatre – Drama Desk Award nomination, NYT Critic’s Pick) and Old Jews Telling Jokes (Westside Theatre, NYT Critic’s Pick). All the World’s a Stage was commissioned by Keen Theater Company, NYC (Jonathan Silverstein, Artistic Director) and will be directed by Jonathan Silverstein.
