Summer Garden’s [title of show]

“In 90 minutes [title of the show] travels from a simple theater story to a tale of universal longing. That’s the goal of good theater and this show delivers that — and good music, too,” writes Bay Weekly reviewer Davina Grace Hill about a show following two aspiring but struggling writers thru the gauntlet of creative self-expression as they write and produce an original show in three weeks. Playing thru July 20.
