Bookends: A Musical Journey (San Francisco & New York City)
Bookends: A Musical Journey is a bi-coastal Improvised Musical Theatre duo made up of long time improvisors and Un-Scripted alums Diana DiCostanzo and Clay Robeson. Diana DiCostanzo is currently a NYC based actress, improvisor, and singer/songwriter and Clay Robeson is a SF based improvisor. They first met performing with the Un-Scripted Theatre Company in 2011 and bonded playing leading roles one night in a Dickensian Musical inspired by “A Little Mermaid”. Though now on both sides of the country, they have formed this brand new duo to continue the task of bringing cutting edge, dramatic, improvised Musical Theatre to audiences everywhere. Their show, “Bookends: A Musical Journey” is inspired by Jason Robert Brown’s musical “The Last Five Years” and tells the story (exclusively through song) of two characters whose timelines criss-cross through time. The audience helps establish the given perameters of the characters' relationship and the cast fills in the rest!
