The Story of My Life is an intimate, melodic Broadway musical deconstruction of the effects time can take on friendship. Thomas Weaver and Alvin Kilby have been friends since childhood. Thomas has become a best-selling author, and he wants to understand what happened to his friendship with Alvin.
To gain that understanding, he turns to what he does best, creating stories. So, The Story of My Life takes the audience through a 30-year relationship of two best friends.

Who's Who and What's What :
The Story of My Life features Broadway veterans as stars and the director, but it was written by two newcomers.
The show stars Will Chase, who was well-reviewed in the short-lived High Fidelity, and Malcolm Gets, a Sex in the City star who was Tony-nominated for Amour. Directing is Richard Maltby Jr., who has a string of Broadway credits including, most recently, The Pirate Queen.
The book of the musical is by Brian Hill with music and lyrics by Neil Bartram. Hill and Bartram are an experienced, award-winning musical team, and The Story of My Life is their first collaboration to hit Broaway.
