in emerging love. What is right or appropriate and when? After avoidance of saying the word, the couple confesses that behind their buzzing closed lips there is love! We next find Caitlyn in college, with a string of unsuccessful relationships: in high school she dated the captain of the varsity soccer team; in college she loved a passionate political activist; now she loves a man from work who has the perfect job, home, and body. Whether struggling with a predictable future, a future in the shadow, or to have a future at all, Caitlyn has a problem with commitment. Following this commitment problem, we meet a wife who has a real, perfect man. Jonathan and his wife enjoy concerts, dancing, traveling, and cooking together. Jonathan also loves tanning, ballet, Broadway shows, going to the Y in the village, and cuddling to Sex and the City. Jonathan might be gay, but he is still the perfect man! Part of a Painting introduces an artist fresh from a sabbatical in Athens. On his way home to a lady in Pittsburgh, he has discovered peace and beauty. Describing his visit to the Grecian castle in vivid detail and how he has subsequently found his way, he promises to paint a vivid portrait for his love. The four singers reconvene and promise to move on from the past and embrace life with arms open wide. No longer needing relationships for comfort or for crutches, they are ready to truly care for someone. The show closes with Coasting, a song that blasts small talk and requests substance and connection from relationships. It encourages us to mean what we say and to truly embrace the question Who am I and who do I want to become? MUSICAL NUMBERS 1. Become 2. Busy With Dreams 3. Monticello 4. Lying There 5.
