Online Ticket Sales

Written & Directed by Josh Ravetch
Lyrics by Alan & Marilyn Bergman
Music by Bill Cantos & Mari Falcone, Dave Grusin, Marvin Hamlisch, Michel Legrand and Johnny Mandel 
Featuring Tyne Daly, Robert Forster & Scott Kradolfer

“Daly brings to the role her sweet and sour realism, slingshot comic timing and emotional heft… her stage presence alone is worth the price of admission.” – Los Angeles Times
“Tyne Daly is a comic force! The one-liners come fast. So do the sobs.” – The Hollywood Reporter
“This piece not only tugs at your heartstrings but will make you cherish every moment of living.” –
“A complete joy to watch! Ravetch skillfully directs the brilliant Tyne Daly.” –
“Ravetch’s writing is full of insights about life as it is lived, past and present… but not without being terribly, terribly funny.” –
“Forster as Franklin is so natural and low key in his approach and nails Franklin’s demeanor to a tee.” –
“Kradolfer as Mason brings vulnerability and support to his mother’s dilemma.” –

In this world premiere with songs written by legendary lyricists Alan and Marilyn Bergman, Tyne Daly stars as a woman not quite ready to let go of the life she’s loved and the love of her life.

Recipient of the Edgerton Foundation New Play Award
