The show promises “The Tales Granny Will Never Tell” and it delivers. In the opening scene, a newly-departed couple discovers their son has pulled their plugs to get his Dad’s vintage corvette. The couple doesn’t mind! The show romps through the “best years of their lives” at Pelican Roost, an active senior living community, where 70-something is the new 20-something, only with looser skin. The place oozes with characters, each with unique answers to later-life’s questions.
This is not your grandma’s assisted living. Songs include “Help! I’ve Fallen (For You) and I Can’t Get Up”, “WalkerDude@Facebook.com” and “the Uplifting Viagra Medly.” Residents are advised “It’s ok to get close, but don’t get something gross.”
Assisted Living: The Musical opened in Naples, Florida in 2010 and immediately drew the attention of national press. It enjoyed AP coverage in more htan 180 newspapers, and on the radio including the BBC and ABC World Radio News.
