About [title of show]: Jeff and Hunter, two struggling writers, hear about a new musical theatre festival. However, the deadline for submissions is a mere three weeks away. With nothing to lose, the pair decides to try to create something new with the help of their friends Susan and Heidi with Larry on the keyboards. With the cast in place, Jeff and Hunter begin a conversation about what to write. Eventually, Jeff suggests they write about what to write about. They make a pact to write up until the festival’s deadline and dream about the show changing their lives. [title of show]--taken from the space on the festival’s application form which asks for the [title of show]--follows Hunter and Jeff and their friends on their journey through the gauntlet of creative self-expression. In the span of 90 minutes they write and perform their show at the festival and learn lessons about themselves as people, friends and artists. [title of show] is, above all, a love letter to the musical theater: a uniquely American art form--and to the joy of collaboration. The musical received a Tony Award nomination for Best Book of a Musical in 2009.

About Almost, Maine: A place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in
the United States. It’s almost in Canada. And it’s not quite a town,
because its residents never got around to getting organized.
So it almost doesn’t exist.

One cold, clear, winter night, as the northern lights hover in the
 star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine, find themselves
falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are
bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts
mend—almost—in this delightful piece for actors and their audiences.

Described by the author, John Cariani, as “a Midwinter Night’s Dream,”
the play is a series of nine amiably absurdist vignettes about love,
with a touch of good-natured magic realism thrown in to each.
A true piece for actors and audiences, this is a beautifully structured play,
with wonderful surprise endings – most, but not all of them, happy.
