An Original Musical by Michael Cohen

CREW

CAST

The Neon Coconut is a run down nightclub in the fictitious town of Sandy Grove Florida. The year is 1963, and the club has seen better days. It’s few patrons now come mostly to see Dottie White, the lounge singer, who sings jazzy, sultry ballads for the middle aged audience.
The musical focuses on the conflict between Dottie and her former best friend from high school, Colleen Brooks. Not having seen or heard from each other since Dottie left town years before, abandoning her child, Colleen is bitter, but also afraid of Dottie learning about her own secret. Having heard stories of Dottie’s return under a false name, Colleen comes to the club to confront her about her past.
The Neon Coconut reflects that time in the early 60’s when music was starting to transition from the older styles of the WW2 generation, to the beginnings of the rock era. Stylistically the music ranges from bluesy ballads to girl group rock and roll to hipster jazz to novelty swing to Calypso.
