We're Only Alive for a Short Amount of Time, a new musical memoir from David Cale (co-written with Matthew Dean Marsh), opened at The Public Theater June 27. The production, helmed by Goodman Theatre Artistic Director Robert Falls, premiered Off-Broadway following a Chicago debut last fall.

In the show, Cale reflects on a childhood spent escaping from his parents' unhappy marriage by singing and taking care of birds in the backyard. He is accompanied by a six-piece orchestra.
