This critically-acclaimed musical tells the story of Lydia Taylor, a faded Broadway star, so desperate to work she takes a job in a no-budget slasher-horror movie called "The Vigilante Granny" and her whole life changes.


"Moving, humorous, tuneful and heartfelt...deserves many tomorrows."

William Hirschman,

Originally Produced with a cast of 10 (8 women, 2 Men)  but could be done with more or less and different gender ratios. Lots of doubling.

"Delightful new musical explores ageism in an entertaining way​...One More Yesterday is also poignant. Manning’s lyrics illustrate the joy, pain, humor, in the story. It’s an important subject, presented in a delightfully entertaining way."

Mary Damiano, The New Pelican


"A Perfect mixture of dazzle and heart...I can still vividly recall the melodies of quite a few of the show’s infectious musical numbers...the accessible nature of One More Yesterday makes it easy to imagine it winning over popular audiences of all stripes."

Ilana Joel

  1. "One More Yesterday, is a life-affirming, funny, touching, imaginative, and gorgeous show. An energetic, eye-popping, and believable production. One More Yesterday is a love letter to live theater and a treat for any aficionado. One More Yesterday is wise without condescending, sweet without being saccharine, and sincere without preaching."

  2. Aaron Krause


  4. One More Yesterday has earned a long theatrical life. 


A hilarious campy show that’s also charmingly sweet, occasionally silly or sad, will likely ring true for many in the acting profession, and sizzles with catchy showtune-style songs and dance accompanied by live music. Best of all, this musical arrives at a genuinely warm-hearted conclusion that has you leaving the theater feeling optimistic – whatever your stage in life."

South Florida Theater Magazine

"A joyous and hilarious story of how everyone deserves one more chance!"
