-From Sunday in the Park with George, by Sondheim & Lapine

The first production of our 25th Anniversary season will be THE LUCKY ONES by Lia Romeo, directed by Boomerang Associate Artistic Director Cailin Heffernan. The production runs February and March 2023.
Vanessa and Janie are best friends, but a devastating diagnosis is making them reconsider what that friendship means and how much it matters. Vanessa is sick, and she’s getting sicker, while Janie is embarking on a new love affair. As their paths go different directions, the cracks in the friendship begin to emerge. A play about the value and importance of female friendship in a patriarchal society.
THE LUCKY ONES made its world premiere at Dreamcatcher Repertory (currently Vivid Stage) in September 2019.
Performance dates and casting will be announced in January 2023.
