Additional time info:

Tickets are now on sale for the Massachusetts premier of Audrey Cefaly's The Last Wide Open (Sept. 24-Oct. 10), starring Ethan Butler and Rebecca Shor with Kayla Shimizu, directed for The Umbrella Stage Company by Nancy Curran Willis.

Fate plays its hand in this unconventional romantic comedy that has been called "imaginative, vibrant, heart-felt...a mystical, delicate gem of a play." 

Lina, a young waitress, and Roberto, 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. 

A love song in three movements, imagines how the universe conspires to bring us together.
