Seize the Day

Celebrate the triumph of the human spirit with Seize the Day! A young man’s coming of age story in Harlem was told using the poetry of Langston Hughes set to a world premiere commission by Ricky Ian Gordon. Rousing Broadway music from Pippin’ and Newsies told stories of courage and optimism. Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell, Pippin') used lyrics from the It Gets Better project in his inspirational piece Testimony. The Boston Gay Men’s Chorus’s acclaimed high school outreach came to life as the chorus was joined on stage by Wellesley High School’s choirs “Keynotes” and “The Rice Street Singers.” 225 singers on stage!
