What would YOU do if you woke up to find your entire life thrown into a comedic, book-driven, commercial, but with artistry, high brow, low budget, modern but traditional original American musical?..........Howard Barnes is a perfectly average man, until the day that he wakes up to discover that every aspect of his life has become a musical. Desperate to escape from the show, Howard embarks on a fantastical quest through the realm of musical theater to get his boring life back again.  Equal parts satire, romantic comedy, and love letter to the American musical, The Noteworthy Life of Howard Barnes is intended for people who love musical theater, and their loved ones who hate it.

The Noteworthy Life of Howard Barnes will run for fifteen (16) performances and is the Inaugural Production of Forge Light Theatreworks!
