Calendar Notice for "Almost, Maine" December 3, 2010 to January 8, 2011
NEW MILFORD, CONN. (October 19, 2009) – This Holiday Season, TheatreWorks New Milford will debut ALMOST, MAINE by John Cariani, a warm romantic comedy set under the frigid northern lights.
ALMOST, MAINE is the name of the mythical town in which this delightful romantic comedy take place, creatively delving 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.
ALMOST, MAINE is under the direction of Glenn R. Couture of Ansonia.
The production features some of the region’s finest actors: Robyn Maitland (New Fairfield), David Martin (Washington), Kelly McMurray (Brewster, NY), Michael Wright (Newtown), Stacy-Lee Erickson (New Milford), Adrienne Marra Brown (Collinsville), and Mike Ritts and Christopher Smith (both Torrington).
