|New Wrinkles is a fast-paced original musical comedy revue about the coming-of middle-age. Performed by 2
men and 2 women, the songs and sketches focus on the anxieties and realizations accompanying mid-life.
Topics range from memory loss, sagging body parts, empty nests and retirement worries to HMOs and AARP.
The show originated in various venues in the San Francisco Bay Area and has since had successful
productions in other cities in the US and Canada.
New Wrinkles is a collaboration of 3 award-winning writers -
Rita Abrams (Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, For Whom The Bridge Tolls),
Morris Bobrow (Party of One, Shopping! The Musical ) and Gerald Nachman (Quirks, Aftershocks)
