Golden Palace | Now.Here.This | Jeff Bowen, Hunter Bell, Susan Blackwell, & Heidi Blickenstaff
Yup, I want to do Now.Here.This. now, and I’m only two songs in. I just want to be in every musical composed/written by Hunter Bell and Jeff Bowen. I just want to spend the rest of my life playing Heidi and/or Susan (or Jeff and Hunter if they ever overlooked the whole lack of a penis thing).

Now. Here. This. has music and lyrics by Jeff Bowen and a book by Hunter Bell and Susan Blackwell. It was produced Off-Broadway at Vineyard Theatre with direction and choreography by Michael Berresse, musical direction and arrangements by Larry Pressgrove, and starred the three writers alongside collaborator Heidi Blickenstaff.
The musical reunited the six major collaborators of the Tony-nominated Broadway musical [title of show], which was also produced by Vineyard Theatre in 2006, winning Obie Awards for its creators, prior to transferring to Broadway. Bell was Tony Award-nominated for Book of a Musical.
Here’s how Vineyard characterized the hard-to-define Now. Here. This.: “The six original collaborators of [title of show] are back and all delving into life’s big questions with inimitable humor and humanity. The show explores birds, bees, reptiles, early man, ancient civilizations, and outer space. Also, loneliness, friendship, hoarding, hiding, laughing, living and dying. And middle school. And dinosaurs.”
I love them so much.
This is our [tos]ser cast to a T, as well, life is too weird.
