Words by Naomi Matlow
Music by Teresa Lotz

Three Times Fast is a new musical with words by Naomi Matlow and music by Teresa Lotz. The show follows the coming of age of fifteen year old Olivia Klemons as she wades through the stress of high school, her mother’s remarriage, a move to a new house and her fresh diagnosis with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.  As Olivia faces her deepest fears through therapy with Dr. West, she uncovers strength she never knew she had. Through Olivia’s struggles and recoveries, her family members contemplate the habits that they have created to help them get through the day with a feeling of greater control over life’s uncertainties.
