In this personal and intimate musical, Jason Robert Brown (Parade, Songs for a New World, Thirteen) takes the conventions of Broadway and sends them spinning into the 21st century. Brown uses his wit and insight to tell a contemporary story of a relationship between a writer and an actress falling in and out of love and told from both points of view. Parents Advisory: Rated PG-13 for language.

Directed by Kyle Fabel
