Side Man (1999)
The 1999 winner of the Tony Award for Best Play, Warren Leight's Side Man enters the world of jazz, where promises are made to be broken. Jazz trumpeter Gene swore to his wife that if ever he couldn't book a Saturday night gig, he would get out of the business. Years later it is up to their son to pick up the shattered pieces of his father's empty promise. This poignant memory play strikes sympathetic chords as it documents the destruction of a family through one man's obsessive love of his music.
