Feeling Alright, a psychedelic rock-musical written by Houston-based award-winning playwright Michael Weems and conceived by Mary Winter, Rachel Landon, and Wayne Landon, returns to Houston for a limited run at Obsidian Art Space.
Against the backdrop of 1975 America, six friends and former bandmates meet up for a 10-year high school reunion. A decade after their commencement, they swap stories about life and relive their youth through the music that defined a generation.
With songs made famous by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin, Joe Cocker, and more, Feeling Alright will leave you reminiscent of a bygone era before beat machines and dubstep, when music was made solely by musicians and their instruments.
Feeling Alright is a co-production between Standing Room Only Productions and Obsidian Art Space, a pairing which previously brought to Houston an emotional production of Next to Normal, a powerful commentary on mental illness in America.
Feeling Alright is directed by Wayne Landon and features Marco Camacho, Heather Hall, Chelsea Lerner, J.D. Rose, Jeff Taylor, Ron Van Zandt, and the Feeling Alright Band.
