Scene 0 – Set 11 (Empty Stage) – Song #28

The music to Song #28 – “It’s Nice To Be Together Again” – begins. The curtain goes up. EVERYONE is holding hands. They are standing in a line across the front of the stage. JENNY and MIKE are at center stage with the supporting characters to their immediate sides, then the minor characters on either side of them. At the ends are the MEDIA REPRESENTATIVES. (See the illustration below.)

R←R←R←R←R←R←S←M←B←R←D←R←J   M→S→T→M→D→S→R→R→R→R→R→R

Note: EVERYONE sings the choruses. Jenny and Mike take turns singing the verses.

Half way through the initial chorus, one MEDIA REPRESENTATIVE from each end of the line falls off, walking to the back of the stage. With every line of lyric, another set of MEDIA REPRESENTATVES falls off the line (left and right), following the person before them to the back of the stage.

Note: The remaining cast members on the front line on the left move left and the cast members on the right move right, filling the vacancies left by the cast members on either side of the line that have fallen off the line. Essentially, the cast is divided into two slow but steadily rotating circles – those on the left of the stage circling clockwise and those on the right side of the stage circling counter-clockwise.

Once at the back of the stage, the cast members circle to the middle of the stage and then march to the front. In this way, the cast members are recognized two by two (one from either side of the line). Their bow lasts for one line of lyric, after which they join the front line.

After MEDIA REPRESENTATIVES are the 2 SERVERS and then MOTHER (on the left) and DAUGHTER (on the right). These are the last minor characters, and the last of the cast to be introduced two at a time.

EVERYONE

It’s nice to be together again.

It’s nice to see two broken hearts mend.

We had too much to leave behind to let our romance end.

It’s nice to be together again.

MIKE

How could I have been so blind?

How could I have missed the signs?

How did I let you slip away from me?

How could it have been so hard to see?

JENNY

Small things got in front of me.

I lost sight and could not see.

Searching desperately for what was in my hand.

Too blind to see you’re my favorite fan.

EVERYONE

It’s nice to be together again.

It’s nice to see two broken hearts mend.

We had too much to leave behind to let our romance end.

It’s nice to be together again.

The last of the minor characters are introduced by the end of the second chorus. After the second chorus, 7 of the 8 supporting cast members take a bow one at a time throughout the third and fourth verses. First Bonnie, then Matthew, then Rebecca, then Tom, then Diane, then Steve and then Ronnie. Mike and Jenny come to the forefront during the final chorus. They take a prolonged bow. Just before the end of the song, there is a surprise for the audience.

MIKE

Now I’m sure you’re meant for me.

Life alone was misery.

I could never love again if we should part.

How could I live with a broken heart.

JENNY

You are everything to me.

You make me what I can be.

Living without you has made me realize.

My blue skies begin within your eyes.

Jenny and Mike make their way to the back of the stage.

EVERYONE

It’s nice to be together again.

It’s nice to see two broken hearts mend.

Jenny and Mike take their bow, each holding a long-stemmed rose they were given from ACT III, Scene 4.

We had too much to leave behind to let our romance end.

It’s nice to be together again.

The last line of the chorus is repeated. As the words unfold, the cast points at individuals in the audience, bouncing from one person to another to the beat of the music.

It’s nice to be together again.

The cast applauds the audience during the break in the lyric between lines.

As the chorus is repeated for the second (and last) time. The cast again points at individuals in the audience to the beat of the music. Just as the word “together” is being sung, the cast points up and back.

At the same time, the projection of WOMAN and FIANCÉ appears amongst clouds as if they are in heaven. They are embracing one another while looking down upon Mike and Jenny and the audience with approval. They are at peace at last.

It’s nice to be together again.

Immediately after Song #28 ends, the melody of Song #28 – “It's Nice To Be Together Again” – begins. It plays in the background as patrons applaud and then begin to exit.

End of the Grand Finale. End of “It’s Not About Love.”


Two additional songs (Song #29 and Song #30) follow in succession. They are not part of It's Not About Love. However, they compliment the theme and provide entertainment for patrons as they exit the theater.

The three exiting songs (Melody #28 and Songs #29 and #30) run 12 minutes in total, which is enough time to empty most theaters to satisfaction.

Song #29 – “Let's Work It Out” – begins.

This song is for everyone in a relationship.

Sometimes it feels the love is gone.

We get frustrated, and blame each other.

But I'm here to tell you love is like the ocean.

And half the time, it's low tide.

I wake up in the morning, the sun shining bright.

I look out the window, not a cloud in sight.

Then I look into your eyes.

All I see are stormy skies.

I remember how you used to look at me.

Eyes glowing enthusiastically.

But disappointment takes its toll.

First the heart and then the soul.

I remember all the good things that we had.

You fill my life with wonder.

I'm sorry for the things that I did and didn't do.

Honey, I want to be with you.

My pride is in my pocket. My heart on my sleeve.

My eyes are open and they're good enough to see.

My life is empty without you with me.

Honey, I have no doubt. You're one thing I can't live without.

Let's show what love's about and work it out.

Come on honey, you were meant to be with me.

My pride is in my pocket. My heart on my sleeve.

My eyes are open and they're good enough to see.

My life is empty without you with me.

Honey, I have no doubt. You're one thing I can't live without.

Let's show what love's about and work it out.

Let's show what love's about.

Let's show what love is all about.

Let's work it out.

So remember, the love's not gone.

It's just low tide.

If you hold on, and don't hurt each other too much,

Nature will take its course. And before you know it,

High tide will bring back the waves of love.

You can work it out.

Song #30 – “I Wouldn't Miss A Moment Like This” – begins.

Like a shot the alarm goes off.

The race is underway.

Suited up. Start 'em up. Weavin' in and out to win

the purse – another pressured-filled day.

I race back home to hold you.

But just before I do.

I see in your eyes, it's been a longer day for you.

The pile of bills getting taller.

The bank account getting smaller.

My honey-do list is longer than it's ever been.

We look forward to making things all right,

But we're too tired to turn off the light.

We both roll over to do it all over again.

Then there're moments like this.

I keep going 'cause they exist.

You bring me from the depths to heavenly bliss.

I cannot resist.

When the stars are right honey oh the happiness.

Like a first kiss, I wouldn't miss a moment like this.

Like a first kiss, I wouldn't miss a moment like this.

Instrumental break

I recall running 'round this town, chasing girls away.

Selling tickets to see which one's I'd be with on a given day.

Cash in my pocket, time with my friends and a party every night.

Now me and the dog sing harmony in the moonlight.

The pile of bills getting taller.

The bank account getting smaller.

My honey-do list is longer than it's ever been.

We look forward to making things all right,

But we're too tired to turn off the light.

We both roll over to do it all over again.

Then there're moments like this.

I keep going 'cause they exist.

You bring me from the depths to heavenly bliss.

I cannot resist.

When the stars are right honey oh the happiness.

Like a first kiss, I wouldn't miss a moment like this.

Like a first kiss, I wouldn't miss a moment like this.

Oh baby. Oh yeah.

Like a first kiss, I wouldn't miss a moment like this.
