The Umbrella Stage Company returns to live theater with this romantic comedy with live music by Audrey Cefaly. Limited capacity with COVID health safety protocols required.
Fate plays its hand in this romantic comedy by Audrey Cefaly, featuring original songs by Matthew M. Nielson and directed for The Umbrella Stage Company by Nancy Curran Willis.
Lina (Rebecca Shor), a young waitress, and Roberto (Ethan Butler), 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. Also starring Kayla Shimzu as Stagehand.
A love song in three movements, The Last Wide Open imagines how the universe conspires to bring us together.
This production is staged with limited capacity and enhanced covid health safety protocols in The Umbrella Main Stage Theater144.
