Book & Lyrics by Marcus Stevens · Music by Douglas Levine

 When Rivka Brown shares her will and admits she’s dying, her entire family is pushed to their emotional limits. Long-felt fears and misgivings boil to the surface, resulting in two sisters never speaking again. Years later, the youngest generation of the Gordon/Brown clan must pick up the pieces in order to understand who they were, who they are, and what they’ve truly inherited.

Eastburn Avenue was commissioned by the Pittsburgh Playhouse Repertory Company and had its world premiere in May of 2008. Most recently an industry reading featuring Beth Leavel and Mamie Parris was presented in April 2016.

“Stevens’ lyrics create eloquent emotional passages that are reminiscent of Stephen Sondheim’s work — filled with equal parts cynicism, angst and emotional insight...This is a moving play for anyone to watch.”
