Conceiver
STEVEN SCOTT SMITH
This is a musical revue in two acts, contains no dialogue, and described as a "bookless book musical". The show was originally conceived by Steven Scott Smith as a one act revue entitled "Next Time Now!", which was first given at the nightclub Eighty-Eights. It features self-contained songs which deal with such diverse topics as security, aging, mid-life crisis, second marriages, working couples, and unrequited love. Maltby and Shire based many of the songs on real-life experiences of their friends, or stories told to them.

THE STORY

SYNOPSIS

As in their joyous first revue Starting Here, Starting Now, Maltby and Shire turn an unblinking and frank spotlight on our lives and loves, relationships and fantasies - but the age range has risen somewhat! Wicked satire and the ache of love unrequited or dimmed by time are here a-plenty in 25 memorable songs. The result is truly a revue for today.
