The story is based loosely on the career of the "real-life" David Ippolito, who is known to hundreds of thousands of people across the country and around the world as "That Guitar Man from Central Park". Part singer/songwriter, part storyteller, part social-commentator and activist... David has become famous for his simple catch phrase, "It's just us" and his ability to turn a large crowd of strangers into a group of friends. The story follows this fiercely independent street musician who has been a fixture in New York's Central Park for the past 22 years. As the show opens he writes a funny but politically charged song, poking Conservative talk-show host Sean Kilroy of FAX News. What happens when the song goes viral on YouTube? What happens when the song angers a man who is a powerful voice in the right-wing media and considers himself the voice of America? What happens when Kilroy sends a beautiful and ambitious young woman on a special assignment to destroy the "Guitar Man"? It sets up a "David and Goliath" scenario... and a ride that's unpredictable, fascinating, thought-provoking and fun, with the audience singing half the score and playing the part of the "people on the hill" in Central Park.
