“It’s about one moment. It’s about hitting the wall and having to make a choice… or take a stand… or turn around and go back.”
Written by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown and sitting between musical and song cycle, this moving collection of powerful songs examines life, love, and the choices that we make as it transports audiences through time and space. This topical piece is an examination of a defining moment in history, a reflection of the state of the world in the Summer of 2020.
The production went on to play two performances at The London Palladium, (named Theatre Weekly’s best show of 2020) and had been scheduled for a longer run at The Vaudeville Theatre, which has been unable to go ahead due to current lockdown restrictions.
