Music & Lyrics Eamonn O'Dwyer, Book by Eamonn O'Dwyer & Rob Gilbert
Developed and Licensed by Perfect Pitch Musicals
You go along in life with a simple happy life with a family. Tragedy hits, changing your family to what seems forever. Reality is hidden because nobody knows what happened, until a guest arrives who sees, becomes curious, and asks questions. However the family does not want you to ask questions.
Nathan has a project which he needs time to work on. He becomes a guest at a lodge to do his work, and gets a weird feeling that the family running the lodge is hiding something. Their dysfunction gives it away. His questions do make the family and "guest" look at themselves. Like looking into a mirror to relive the tragedy, trying to find an answer.
Mirrors & Hearts have something in common. They can both be broken. Though one needs replaced when broken, the other needs to mend. Yet even a broken heart can be replaced by one of love, as it does for one individual.
During the musical you have a slight tingle in the back of your neck that something is going on. You try to figure it out. When it reaches the end, wham, right in the face. You are shocked, then re-shocked. You think back and wonder why you missed (or failed to see) the signs. This is one of those times you want to go back and watch the musical again, to recognize with new eyes all the skillful craft of writing, acting, and directing that took you on this journey.
