Fate plays its hand in this romantic world premiere when co-workers Lina and Roberto find their lives intersecting in mystical ways.
Fate plays its hand in this wondrous and romantic world premiere. 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.
Prices for The Last Wide Open start at $35 depending on seat location and are subject to change. Tickets for children, teens and students are $30. Student tickets are just $15 on the day of the show. Plus, Sunday is College Night, with tickets to all 7:00 p.m. performances just $10.
