The New York Premiere of Ted Shen’s A Second Chance begins performances off-Broadway on March 18. Directed by Jonathan Butterell, the new musical stars real-life husband and wife Brian and Diane Sutherland and will run through April 13.
A Second Chance tells the New York story of a recent widower and a divorcee who meet in mid-life and mid-crisis. Presented with the overwhelming challenge of freeing themselves from their painful pasts, neither feels deserving of happiness. Yet, the awakening of unanticipated feelings leads them to a possibility they both least expected to find.
Opening night is set for March 30 at the Public’s Shiva Theater.
