The Life and Love of Joe Coogan [world premiere]

“With music by Paul Salerni and libretto by Kate Light, The Life and Love of Joe Coogan, adapted from The Dick Van Dyke Show episode of the same name, combines pathos with gentle comedy in its tale of a storybook marriage tinged by doubt.”

“Cherry Duke, as Sally Rogers, a co-writer for the comedy show, was another standout. Duke was supremely versatile, equally at home being hilarious as Joe’s blind date as she was sadly touching in her aria ‘Being Lonely is not so Funny.'”
