CL Critic Kevin C. Madigan Recommends: Perpetually frazzled grad student Deb loses her thesis notes somewhere on the streets of New York but struggling artist Warren finds them for her and a relationship of sorts ensues. Another couple, Jason and Claire, contemplate marriage but keep getting in each other’s way, as do their pasts. “This is one sweet, quietly extraordinary musical that cleanses the soul, lifts the spirit, and reminds you what you love about New York,” wrote a reviewer for Stage Left. It’s “for anyone who's ever struggled to see the forest through the trees.” Penned by composer and lyricist Adam Gwon, this production is directed by Keena Redding, noted for her work with OutFront Theatre, ARTstation, Georgia Ensemble Theatre and Horizon. Jared Brodie, Anna Holland, Frankie Marasa, Suzanne Stroup, Sara Joyce Hack and Triumph Gardner make up the cast. — KCM
