Mark your calendars for a special limited engagement of the acclaimed original musical inspired by the life of Sadako Sasaki: "Peace on Your Wings"

There will be three performances at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater (524 W. 59th St. NYC):
Friday, September 9th at 7:30pm
Saturday, September 10th at 2:00pm and 7:30pm

Set in post-war 1950′s Japan, “Peace On Your Wings” explores the lives of students at a middle school in Hiroshima as they face the terminal illness of their friend amidst their own adolescent drama. The musical score combines modern musical theater, 1950’s boogie-woogie and rock and roll, and Japanese styles, including taiko, to create a unique, uplifting, and inspiring show. While Sadako remains optimistic in the hospital, determinately folding origami cranes to fulfill the Japanese legend promising one wish and long life to the folder of a thousand, her friends grow distant as they deal with their own self identity, bullying, and the growing pains of becoming teenagers. Though the students have to grapple with issues of terminal illness and death at such a young age, they also learn the power of their own strength, and their ability to connect deeply with others who remain positive, focusing on living every precious moment of their lives to the fullest. “Peace On Your Wings” teaches the lesson, “Ichigo Ichie,” meaning “Today is the first and last day of your life.”

Peace On Your Wings is more than a musical theater play. It is part of a continual movement to educate children and adults alike about the important global message of peace.
