"Who am I?" "Who do I want to become?" EDGES is not a traditional musical; it is an exciting new show about four burgeoning adults asking these classic coming-of-age questions. Written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (2007 Jonathan Larson Award Recipients) in their sophomore year at the University of Michigan, the contemporary song cycle carries an honest voice advocating introspection while maintaining wit and charm. Confronting emotions, escaping expectations, and deciphering complicated relationships--the songs cover such universal issues as love, commitment, identity, and meaning. Encouraging experimental productions, Pasek & Paul want you to explore what happens when we are teetering on the edges!
