“Almost, Maine” thaws even the coldest of hearts
The UWL Department of Theatre Arts presents the rom-com classic, “Almost, Maine” by John Cariani.
“Almost, Maine” tells the story of a magical night in a small mythical New England almost-town named Almost, Maine. The citizens of Almost, Maine find themselves in multiple stages of love, loss and identity as they face impending divorces, upcoming engagements and first-time meetings. In one night, the town of Almost experiences the life-altering power of the human heart.
Propelled by the mystical energy of the aurora borealis and populated with characters who are humorous, plain-spoken, thoughtful and sincere, “Almost, Maine” is a series of loosely connected tales about love. According to the New York Daily News, “Sweet, poignant and witty. Nearly perfect. Almost, Maine charm is real. [It] packs wit, earns its laughs and, like love, surprises you.”
The talented six cast members, playing 21 characters, will warm even the coldest of hearts. Performances run at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 1-3 and 2 p.m. Nov. 4 in the Frederick Theater, lower level of Morris Hall, 1615 State St.
