Original musical comedy presented

Local playwright Scott Phillips has written his first musical, “Paris on the Brain,” and it will debut at the Kent Theatre in Cedar Springs this summer. In this musical comedy, Paul is surprised by the reappearance of the woman he loved but left in Paris several months before. The exotic Meena arrives, expecting to marry, and Paul enlists his quarrelsome sisters to help explain the abrupt nuptials to their conservative parents. This engaging musical ranges from hilarious to poignant as three generations adapt to growth and change within the family.

Based on a true family story, Phillips wrote the musical with his sister, Jill Phillips, who composed the words and music. A former professional musician, Jill proposed the musical after witnessing the enthusiastic reception given Scott’s first two plays, “Fish and Visitors” and “None Would Be Old.” The audience will delight in this collaboration and empathize with the problems of the family that proudly sings “We put the fun in dysfunctional!”

Performances will be August 7, 8, 14 and 15 at 7:30 p.m., and August 16 at 3:00 p.m. at the historic Kent Theatre, 8 N. Main Street, Cedar Springs.
