Side ManSide Man 
a comedy-drama by Warren Leight
February 21 - March 15, 2003

1999 Tony Award for Best Play

Smoothly gliding between present and past, SIDE MAN tells the story of a time before The Beatles and Elvis, when jazzmen were as heroic as ball players and there was no shortage of Saturday night gigs. SIDE MAN is both a tribute to the men whose lives were their music and a sober look at a broken family left in the wake of that passion.

"Leight does full justice both to the sordid side of the jazz world
and to the moments of pure joy that the players experience
when they kept time so well it stood still for them.'"
- Fintan OíToole, New York Daily News
