Niagara Gazette — “The idea for the musical started in my imagination as a conversation between two people and the story has evolved organically since I began writing it in 2003,” he said.

As the show’s sole writer, producer and composer, Horn’s reconstruction of “Legacy” has required a great deal of drive and dedication. Horn not only wrote the lines and the songs of the musical, he also plays the drums, bass, guitar, and piano for the show’s music.

By design “Legacy” consists of a simple set: just three actors – Horn, Rosie Lorenti, and Nick Lama – and a couch as the main stage prop. Bandmate and set designer Doug Life has the responsibility of making sure the stage looks exactly like the image Horn has pictured in his head.

“We don’t have a fancy set so you can’t hide behind anything,” he said. “It’s an intimate setting where the challenge lies in allowing subtle affects to make a big impact.”

Lorenti, bandmate of Horn and a main actress in the musical, plays the role of the sister Willow. Lorenti found a deep connection with the show’s music and the strong presence of the characters.

“The songs are very heartfelt and it helps create compassion for the characters as you get to know them and where they’re going to in the story,” she said.

Horn and his crew urge the community to come in and watch the new version of the musical.

“It’s raw and unique and because it’s the first time it will be staged it’s something very special,” said Lorenti.
