In this musical novel adaptation of the award winning musical Wrapped, Benny Wright, family man and performing artist, experiences a devastating knockout blow from a cold-hearted record industry. Unable to catch his breath, and realizing he’ll never make good on the lifestyle he’s dreamed for his family, the tragic hero concocts a noble but seemingly absurd plan–one he deems guaranteed-to-succeed to turn luck in his favor. Through the soundtrack of Benny’s soul, we are invited to share a journey familiar to all of us–a quest to transcend desperation and prove that where hope ends, the triumph of the human spirit begins.

A great new way to experience a book!” -Bill Castellino, Award Winning Playwright, Theatre Director & Producer New York City. “This is a fascinating concept, a new form of entertainment from creators who have worked hard to re-shape the musical theatre form as they find ways to bring it to new audiences. -James Morgan, Producing Artistic Director, The York Theatre Company.
