David Auxier - "The EnGAYgement" –with Seph Stanek
 
THE ENGAYGEMENT is an original musical adventure through the joys and tribulations of two men in New York City; the thrall of the first date, the bliss and the challenges of domestic partnership, and the victories of marriage. With music and lyrics by David Auxier-Loyola and musical arrangements by Mark York, you will take delight in the storytelling, both poignant and hilarious, through a wealth of classic musical theater style with a modern sensibility.
