“Some Sweet Day” Features Time Travel and Second Chances

On Friday, April 26, “Some Sweet Day,” a play by Disney writers Flip Kobler and Cindy Marcus, opened at Sandy Actors Theatre. Directed by Olivia Randall, performances will continue through May 19 every Friday and Saturday evening at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday afternoons at 2:00 p.m.

Ken regrets losing Jenny, the girl of his dreams, 24 years ago. He’s obsessed with building a machine that will take him back in time to fix his mistakes. When fate grants his wish, he finds himself 25 years in the past.
Desperate to get his younger version to marry Jenny, he plays Cyrano to himself. But his younger self is just as stubborn as the older version and refuses to heed advice from an old man. As he tries to bring the lovebirds together, Ken falls for Jenny all over again and is now trying to woo the girl away from...well, himself! “Some Sweet Day” is mostly a high-octane romantic comedy, but it also takes a serious look at life, our time on this planet and the price we pay for regret.

““Some Sweet Day” was not actually my first choice of show to direct this season,” said director Olivia Randall. “But we were unable to obtain the rights for the show I planned to do. “Some Sweet Day” stood out to me — there was this beautiful combination of fun and energy with moments of poignancy and connection.”

Audience members may see elements of their youth reflected in the characters on the stage — the desire to go back and change things that didn’t turn out the way they planned, the feelings of anxiety in not having everything figured out at 25, the thrill and fear of falling in love and the inadequacy you feel when you compare yourself to others.

As Jenny says, “I don’t want to live in a world without mistakes.” Everything you have gone through, both good and bad, has brought us here, to this moment, together. So please, enjoy the show!
