Co-written with composer Deborah Abramson, the score consists of "funny harangues and skewed portraits," according to production notes.

Demond Green, Emily Walton, Rema Webb, Sally Wilfert, Michael Winther, Andre Goddard, Emily Reeves, Sara Kase, and Matthew Krob are the cast for the show, which will run through Aug. 17 only at the BSC's Mr. Finn’s Cabaret, located on the lower level of the Sydelle and Lee Blatt Performing Arts Center, 36 Linden Street, Pittsfield.

Vadim Feichtner is the music director.

"It is tremendously exciting to be presenting a new group of fabulous songs by the ridiculously talented Tony-winning composer/lyricist William Finn and the equally talented Deborah Abramson," said BSC Artistic Director Julianne Boyd.

Finn has written or compiled several song cycles in the past, notably Infinite Joy; Elegies: A Song Cycle and Make Me a Song, though always previously with his own music.
