"If you care about theater that stretches your imagination, go see this remarkable play."--"Time Out New York"Rosemary and Evelyn met "a hundred thousand years ago" in Central Park when their children were barely born. "Somewhere Fun" reunites the two women thirty-five years later on Madison Avenue, one windy fall day. With their children now grown and the world changing rapidly before (what's left of) their eyes, each finds herself face to face with the terrors, joys, and surprises of life and time. Jenny Schwartz's surreal new play received an acclaimed world premiere off-Broadway in summer 2013.
Jenny is the 2012 recipient of the Frederick Loewe Award for Musical Theatre for the development of her musical Iowa, which she is writing with composer Todd Almond. Other awards and honours include the American Academy of Arts and Letters' Benjamin H. Danks Award in Drama, a Kesselring honour, two grants from Lincoln Center's Lecomte du Nuoy Foundation, and Soho Rep's Dorothy Streslin Playwriting Fellowship.
