The Testing LP
"Testing the Musical." Music and lyrics by Mark Perreault. Book by Alvin Aronson and Mark Perreault. Based on the "Don Quixote" short story "The Man Who Was Too Curious For His Own Good." Set on a summer island outside New York City, the musical is a modern treatment of a classic story about a man who asks his best friend to test the virtues of his girlfriend. The concept is similar to that of Mozart's "Cosi Fan Tutte."
