The Life (Jun 1997)
Pamela Isaacs, Kevin Ramsay
Ethel Barrymore Theatre
The Life is a musical with a book by David Newman, Ira Gasman and Cy Coleman, music by Coleman, and lyrics by Gasman. Based on an original idea by Gasman, the show explores the underbelly of Times Square's 42nd Street, inhabited by pimps and prostitutes, druggies and dealers, and runaways and street people in the era prior to its Disneyfication.The Life was the pulsating life on the Times Square streets in the 1980s-where everything had a price, especially sex -the garish topless bars, the transvestite joints, the hookers who worked the sidewalks at the bidding of their pimps. The show was first produced at the off-Broadway Westbeth Theatre, running from July 30, 1990 to August 16, 1990. Joe Layton directed and choreographed, with a cast that featured Chuck Cooper, Lillias White, and Mamie Duncan-Gibbs. The Broadway production, directed by Michael Blakemore, opened on April 26, 1997 at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre, where it closed on June 7, 1998 after for 466 performances and 21 previews. Among a large cast were Pamela Isaacs, Chuck Cooper, Lillias White, and Sam Harris, winner of the first Star Search television competition in 1984. Choreography was by Joey McKneely, scenic design by Robin Wagner, costume design by Martin Pakledinaz, and lighting design by Richard Pilbrow. White and Cooper both won Tony awards for their performances in this production.
