I Remember Lou What is I Remember Lou?


Lou is an ensemble musical with music, lyrics and book by Alan Stillson. It’s about an attorney for the New York City Housing Authority who chooses fighting for the rights of tenants in slum buildings over making a lot of money. Its world premier was at the Whitefire Theatre in Sherman Oaks, CA in June and July of 2012.


I Remember Lou combines a modern story with all the elements of a classical Broadway style musical - likeable characters, melodic songs, fun dance numbers and live music. The logline is: Can Lou Goldfarb balance his idealism, religious upbringing and love for his family?


The production at the Whitefire Theatre had a cast of eight males and six females, a sixty minute first act, a forty-five minute second and had live accompaniment by piano only. There are thirteen songs with diverse musical styles. It was produced by Stillsonworks and directed by Alissa-Nicole Koblentz. The music director was Bonnie Janofsky. Audience and critical reaction was extremely positive.
