Fly By Night,  a world premier musical at Theatre Works by Kim Rosenstock, Michael Mitnick and Will Connolly, directed by Bill Fennelly, is an enchanting and thought provoking night out. Smart, funny and poignant lyrics combine with  sweet melodies within a brain-teasing and well-told tale. It's a story as simple as a triangle, as the beguiling, sweet-voiced Narrator, Wade McCollum, tells us - and as complex. “Guided by a star-crossed prophecy, two entrancing sisters and a hapless sandwich maker/would-be songwriter discover a well of courage and a wealth of romance during New York’s knockout blackout of 1965. In a charming, darkly comic rock musical the promise of change begets anxiety and hope, delight and devastation. But as this runaway hit of our New Works Festival proves, it sometimes takes a blackout to see the light” (theatreworks.org).
