Book by Jonothon Lyons
Music & Lyrics by Ben Bonnema
At the turn of the century in the heart of Coney Island, a strongman, a hotdog vendor, a rollercoaster track operator and an apple delivery man meet and discover the magic of barbershop harmony. The Apple Boys is a love letter to a New York City of long ago, whose spirit is still present in the New York City of today. It celebrates the perseverance of the American spirit, the value of friendship, and the virtue of a community coming together to discover that the whole truly is greater than the sum of its parts.
