06/12/2019 - This is a story about those people who live, love and die on the underside of the American Dream in small towns all across our country. This is a tale, laced with humor and visceral energy, about star-crossed lovers, and their stubborn refusal to give up, to lie down, to let go of the potential their youthful dreams once promised. This is also a story about a town in free-fall, and the tough choices people make, not always in their best interests. Book by MacArthur Fellow, Susan Smith Blackburn Prize and Obie Award winning playwright Naomi Wallace and will be directed by 3-time Tony Award winner Kathleen Marshall, music and lyrics by John Mellencamp.

More details will be announced in the Fall. Read More
