“My Favorite Year” at Barn Theatre

“My Favorite Year”
by Joseph Dougherty
Music by Stephen Flaherty
Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens

It’s 1954, and Benjy Stone is a freshman writer on TV’s King Kaiser Comedy Cavalcade. Benjy is assigned the daunting task of baby-sitting veteran Hollywood swashbuckler Alan Swann. His effort to keep Swann off the booze and out of the papers nearly drives him to the brink before he’s given an unexpected glimpse into Swann’s broken heart that teaches him about human frailty, comedy, love – and what made 1954 his favorite year.
