A Funny Story About Making "Us"

One of Jeffery Straker's wonderful songs that made their way into our new musical "Us," (world premiere, Globe Theatre Feb 28, 2018 – Mar 18, 2018) --funny story about this one. This is the song I chose for the last few moments of my last show as host of CBC's SoundXchange--and you can tell why. Is there a more hopeful and uplifting way to end something? It just kept playing in my mind--so much so that my next call was to Jeffery Straker. I asked him if he wanted to create a musical with me, set at an LGBT2QP+++ youth camp--like the amazing Camp Fyreflysask--where he'd been a resident artist (and I was about to become one). He said yes. The rest is...the hopeful, uplifting made-in-Saskatchewan."Us." http://globetheatrelive.com/plays/1718-mainstage/us
