Choreography by Greg Patterson, The Life is a musical that depicts the pulsating life on the streets around Times Square in the 1980s. It explores the lives of the pimps and prostitutes, druggies and dealers, runaways and street people who inhabited 42nd Street prior to its Disneyfication. However, its themes are far more universal than one might expect. It is a play about love, friendship, the strength of women, the will to survive, and the determination to maintain dignity and grace even in the most degrading circumstances
