Sessions … a musical

SessionsTwo bookcases, a desk, and a few chairs adorn the modest stage.  As the hour nears 8pm, the 99 seats of the Algonquin Theater fill up quickly.  An audience always carries a heightened sense of excitement in more intimate theaters.  No seat goes without a close and in person view of the set and characters coming to life.  

Scott Richard Foster

Dr. Peterson is a psychiatrist dealing with individuals from “all slices of life.”  Sunshine is an alcoholic, Mary is abused by her husband, Mr. and Mrs. Murphy fight constantly, Milton is a Bob Dylan impersonator trying to be anything but himself, and Leila is a sassy gal filled with self-doubt. The characters are fairly stereotypical and over exaggerated but there is one who stole the show.  Scott Richard Foster, who plays George Preston, is an absolute talent.  His acting is spot on while his voice creates the chills.  

Albert M. Tapper’s musical Sessions opens at the Algonquin Theater January 14th.  Tickets are $50 or $20 if you are a student or senior, well worth it even if it is only to see Scott Richard Foster work the stage.

  1. I also saw SESSIONS and I laughed and cried and couldn’t stop humming the tunes. The cast is brilliant and the songs are amazing. My family and I went and we can’t wait to go back again.

  2. Truly wonderful! Scott Richard Foster’s voice couldn’t be more amazing.
