42! is an original musical following the story of eight young patients in a hospital’s pediatric ward and the journey of one girl grasping at immortality. Amara, affected by Chagas disease and an enlarged heart, is obsessed with preserving her legacy, terrified of dying. Inspired by her love of literature, Amara writes a play for the other patients to perform as something that will outlive her. Joined by a cast of colorful characters we are taken through a journey of suffering and discovery.
42! was performed in 2016 at Main Street Crossing in Tomball, TX; book and lyrics by Cat Reynolds, music by Gabe Goodman.
