The Goodbye Girl

“Leaves you a bit happier to be alive! The songs have a tuneful brassiness and giddy rhythmic snap and the clever but soulful lyrics are always deeply felt.” – USA Today

The Goodbye Girl follows the unlikely romance between Paula, a single mother who has been jilted one too many times, and Eliot, the opinionated actor who shows up – unexpectedly – on her doorstep with a lease to sublet her apartment. Songs include “A Beat Behind,” “Eliot Garfield Grant,” and “I Think I Can Play This Part.”

Royalty: The Goodbye Girl is presented through special arrangement with Concord Theatricals
