The musical, according to press notes, "is a series of short, self-contained stories in the form of songs and musical scenes from those years when you're waiting for something big to happen but it never does. From the first time you try to make the Thanksgiving turkey and screw it up, to the moment when you realize your childhood is over, these stories are about youth, determination, and unexpected love."
