Everything is Okay (and other helpful lies)
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Onstage October 20 - November 10, 2018.

In this hot mess musical written & composed by Melissa Crum & Caitlin Lewins, a group of close friends struggles to navigate the tragedies of life. Guided by poor decision-making and maybe too much alcohol, these buddies try anything to find happiness while the ties of friendship fray. This dark musical comedy is a celebration of the not-so-happy ways in which we persevere, grow, and change—whether we want to or not. Cheers! WORLD PREMIERE.

Tickets: $15-35.
