To quote Monty Python: “And now for something completely different…”
Instead of the usual fall murder mystery at Nordonia High School, they are switching to a romantic comedy: Almost, Maine by John Cariani. Four couples 13 cast members in 19 roles with some being dual roles.
The story: On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.
