Now. Here. This., the latest work from the gang behind [title of show], has extended its run at off-Broadway’s Vineyard Theatre for a second and final time. The new musical, which was scheduled to run through April 22, will now end its limited engagement on April 28. Directed and choreographed by Michael Berresse, Now. Here. This. opened on March 28.
Now. Here. This. features music by Jeff Bowen and a book by Hunter Bell and Broadway.com contributor Susan Blackwell. The piece, which received a developmental lab production at the Vineyard in 2011, investigates and celebrates living in the present through autobiographical stories and songs accompanied by a multi-piece band. Now. Here. This. explores what goes down in the space between the past and the future, and how the universe conspires to bring people together. The show also delves into life's big questions while exploring birds, bees, reptiles, early man, ancient civilizations and outer space. Also, loneliness, friendship, hoarding, hiding, laughing, living and dying. And middle school. And dinosaurs.
Bell, Blackwell and Bowen reunite for the production alongside Heidi Blickenstaff, with musical director/arranger Larry Pressgrove.
