Directed by BLAKE ROBISON

Fate plays its hand in this romantic world premiere play that features original songs and live music. Lina, a young waitress, and Roberto, an Italian immigrant, have been working together for years but rarely talk. If they do, it’s from a distance or gets lost in translation. But when a late-night thunderstorm finds them alone in the restaurant at closing time, they find their lives intersecting in surprising and mystical ways. Over wine and conversation, they test the waters of happiness and intimacy. A love song in three movements, The Last Wide Open imagines how the universe conspires to bring us together.


ADVISORY:
The Last Wide Open is suitable for adults and older teenage audiences. This mystical world premiere contains romantic situations, some strong adult language and seriously swoon-worthy moments.

RUNNING TIME: The show runs approximately 85 minutes, with no intermission.
