Book, Music, and Lyrics by Jeff Ward

Take One is the story of the disastrous first versions of three great things. It’s a history-spanning musical comedy that explores the struggles that come with the act of creation, even for the gods. In our MID Stage Series, 4th Wall produces fully staged, fully memorized, small-budget shows that have not yet had other formal presentations before a public audience.​ As part of the experience of being in the show's first audience, you will have the opportunity to respond to the show during talkbacks with the director, writer, and actors after each performance.
