Paris on the Brain

The Kent Theatre will be hosting the premier presentation of Scott Phillips' new musical, "Paris on the Brain", with music and lyrics by Jill Phillips.

Scott has written two other successful plays, "Fish and Visitors" and "None Would be Old", both of which also premiered at the Kent Theatre.

"Paris on the Brain" is Scott's first musical and, if the early run throughs are any indication, the audience will pleased with his sister Jill's music and leave the theatre humming the catchy tunes.

In this musical comedy, Paul is surprised by the reappearance of the woman he loved but left in Paris several months before. The exotic Meena arrives expecting to marry and Paul enlists his quarrelsome sisters to help explain the abrupt nuptials to their conservative parents. This engaging musical ranges from hilarious to poignant as three generations adapt to growth and change within the family.

Based on a true family story, Phillips wrote the musical with his sister, Jill Phillips, who composed the words and music. A former professional musician, Jill proposed the musical after witnessing the enthusiastic reception given Scott’s first two plays, "Fish and Visitors," and "None Would be Old." The audience will delight in this collaboration and empathize with the problems of the family that
proudly sings "We put the fun in dysfunctional!"

Tickets are $12 in advance and $15 at the door. There is a special price of $6 for kids under 18 for the Sunday matinee only. Tickets can be purchased in advance at Chase Bank, Cedar Springs Library, and Soul Infusion Tea Shop.

Addditional information is available by emailing
