Weird Romance Music by Alan Menken Lyrics by David Spencer Book by Alan Brenner is a two one-act 1992 musical containing a curious mix of a science fiction framework around traditional themes – the generation gap, a love triangle, and the archetypal conflict between those who have power and those who have none.

About the play:
A U.S. soldier is dead, and military lawyers want to know why. Accused are two Marines stationed at Guantanamo Bay, but who is really to blame? Was this a simple murder or something far more incendiary? Aaron Sorkin’s searing courtroom drama is a provocative and engaging meditation on the inevitable corruption of power, and the responsibilities of those who are just following orders. As timely today as the day it was written!
A Few Good Men had a successful run on Broadway in 1989 and went on to be produced all over the world. Tom Hulce, who originated the role of Lt. Kaffee, was nominated for Best Actor at the Tony Awards that year.
