Those 3 Words: A Musical Journey of Love and Loss

"Those 3 Words" is a poignant and uplifting musical that follows the life of Giuseppe, a middle-aged man navigating the complexities of love and loss. The story unfolds through a tapestry of his most cherished relationships: the unwavering love of his parents, the fierce bond with his siblings, the unwavering loyalty of his best friend, and the all-encompassing love for Alex, the partner who steals his heart.

Giuseppe's journey is marked by both profound joy and heartbreaking loss. He grapples with the passing of his mother, the incarceration of a brother, the distance of a relocated friend, and the ultimate test - the slow, agonizing decline of Alex to cancer.

"Those 3 Words" is a testament to the enduring power of love in the face of adversity. Through laughter and tears, song and dance, Giuseppe grapples with grief, learns to let go, and discovers the resilience of the human spirit. This heartwarming musical explores the universal themes of family, friendship, and the enduring strength of love in the face of loss.

  • Consider incorporating costume changes for the ensemble to visually represent different characters.

*A note about Alex: While the show is intended that Alex is a male the author grants the rights for schools to cast Alex as a female. While the authors intention is that relationship with Giuseppe and Alex to be in a same-sex relationship it is NOT a focus of the musical. Their relationship is intendend to be 'normal' in everyway possible.
