Bonjour Mon Amour, the Musical, is a contemporary story that follows Mike Mercy through ups & downs of love & life. Mike has two friends showing him both sides – an older neighbor with advice to clean up his act or risk losing the love of his life; and his burnout buddy’s much more relaxed opinions.
Richard Hackley is a distinguished member of Broadway producer Ken Davenport’s acclaimed TheatreMakers Program.
