DEFINE IT (2002)
Riverside, CA in cooperation with the YMCA of Moreno Valley (teens)
What is normal? A bunch of research scientists have 24 hours to define “normal” for a new edition of a definitive English language dictionary. The musical is structured in “case files” as the concept of normal is examined from a number of authentic perspectives – normal habits, normal beauty, normal fears, normal dreams, normal self-image, normal relationships, normal gender identity, normal love. Is there such a thing? This show may ask more questions than it answers, but it teaches us much about the limitations of labels and the boundlessness of human expression.
