TheatreWorks of New Milford ends its 2010 season with a production of Almost, Maine by John Cariani Jan. 7 & 8. Glenn R. Couture and Robin Frome direct the play, which features nine vignettes about 19 characters set at 9 p.m. on a cold Friday night in the mythical community of Almost, Maine.
The romantic comedy delves into the vast mysteries of the human heart with laughter, heartbreak, and hope. On a cold, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above Almost. Residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. Love is lost, found, and confounded. But the bruises heal and the hearts mend, almost, in this enchanting midwinter night’s dream.
The production features Robyn, David Martin, Kelly McMurray, Michael Wright, Stacy-Lee Erickson, Adrienne Marra Brown, Mike Ritts and Christopher Smith.
Tickets $20. To reserve tickets, call 860/350-6863 or visit theatreworks.us.
