LYs song used in New York theatre soundtrack

8 July 2008

Lightyears track Miles Away was recently featured as part of the soundtrack for off-Broadway show Vital Signs at the June Havoc Theatre in New York.

The play, written by the Pulitzer-nominated Jane Martin, interweaves the stories of six characters through pivotal points in their lives. The piece is composed of over 30 monologues, each around two minutes in length, and Miles Away was used to provide a musical link between the various scenes.

The production, which ran from 13-15 June, was staged by the Plays for Progress Theatre Company, an organisation with the aim of using the art of theatre to promote social change. Plays For Progress believes that investing in children and youth is crucial to creating a better society and providing more equitable opportunities for everyone.
