Glimmer, Glimmer, and Shine by Warren Leight

Warren Leight burst onto Broadway with the Tony Award-winning play Side Man. Now Leight returns to the broken lives of jazzmen with Glimmer, Glimmer and Shine, which Donald Lyons in the New York Post declared a marvelous ... play ... of jazzmen who made a mess of their lives, and a new generation without their demons. At the height of the big-band era, no other horn trio could wail like Glimmer, Glimmer and Shine. The only thing that could break them apart was life on the road -- full of drugs, women, and alcohol. For thirty-five years secrets have been buried and enmity has simmered. It is only when Daniel Glimmers sheltered daughter, Delia, who never knew of her fathers illustrious past, has a chance encounter with Eddie Shines son, Jordan, that the old comrades in music are reconciled and their resentment buried. Leights writing remains quick, graceful and generous -- a worthy companion piece to Side Man. -- Linda Winer, Newsday A thought-provoking and evocative play, rich with substance and resonance. -- Ed Kaufman, The Hollywood Reporter Glimmer, Glimmer and Shine is like an evening of good jazz -- sometimes raucous, sometimes bubbly, but deeply affecting. -- Howard Kissel, New York Daily News
