SYNOPSIS

Time After Time: The Chet Baker Project (2001)

Time After Time is not a conventional biography or tribute show but rather a search for the essence of a man who created such beauty while destroying himself. Like a piece of music telling a story, Time After Time follows one character, The Writer, as he tries to shed light on this musical enigma. Through The Writer we become part of the play – watching in as Chet’s friends and lovers enact scenes from the past. All of these stories are punctuated musically with Chet accompanied by a live band playing all of his signature tunes.
