a musical comedy with book, music & lyrics by Robert John Ford
ABOUT THE SHOW
This new one-hour musical comedy tells the saga of a hipster couple from Brooklyn who falsely believes a tandem-bike journey as part of RAGBRAI - the Register's Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa - will be a relaxing, carefree summer vacation. Each song focuses on a specific aspect of the ride, such as the delusions, the host towns, the weather, the food, the debauchery, the locals, and the exhaustion.
"CYCLEPATHS" will be presented at venues throughout Iowa (including venues along the RAGBRAI route) as part of the 2024 Summer House Party Tour. A performance schedule will be finalized by April 2024.
"CYCLEPATHS" began as a 15-minute sketch in RJF's musical revue UTOPIA, which has been performed more than 75 times throughout the state of Iowa since 2008.
Photos and videos coming soon.
