Perfect Life

A farmer on a journey to find his wife




After landing in a mental institution, a farmer reflects on his journey to find his wife and the unexpected companion he found on the way. Having received rave reviews in the 1980s, One Man Band has been re-imagined as PERFECT LIFE, a new musical about loss, denial and moving on. Tony and Emmy award-winning composer Larry Hochman teams with Marc Elliot and Laurie Hochman for a powerful, haunting and romantic new musical.
