The San Francisco Examiner said it best,” Gently, funny, and touching on topics near and dear to baby boomers and their parents.”

“A feel good show with lots of laughs.Bring your Mom and Dad, walkers and all”- San Francisco Chronicle

“A laugh out loud look at old age and growing gray disgracefully.”-Naples Daily News

Somewhere nestled in all of our futures is a Pelican Roost: an active retirement community. On this, our tour, we meet the resident Roosters and discover their eccentricities, their desires and what gets them to and through the night.

Help, I’ve Fallen (for You) and I Can’t Get Up, My Hide and The I-Lost-My-Dentures-On-Steak-Night Blues, are gentle railings against the inevitable. But The Uplifting Viagra Medley celebrates every aspiration of this most wonderful of wonder drugs. In The Tattoo on My Butt, we learn how the past colors the future in ways never foreseen.

We meet Naomi, the unsinkable, oft-widowed resident (“Bedridden? I haven’t been bedridden since Mr. Lipschitz passed away.”). There’s an aging TV lawyer who offers to sue someone – anyone – including himself. In the Kumbaya Community Room, we hear from Ben Younger, a retired Catskills comedian who experiments with yoga. Down the hall, we meet a sweet little old lady who’ll do anything for a room with a view.

On our tour, we meet 18 characters, all played by two cast members and a pianist. Baby Boomers and their parents think about growing older. We took these thoughts and set them to music. We make people laugh.

“Assisted Living: The Musical®”  is for anyone who is growing older, or thinking of doing so someday.
