Live Professional Theater Season Opens @ The Umbrella with MA Premiere

The Umbrella Stage Company returns to live theater September 24th – October 10th with The Last Wide Open, an unconventional and mystical romantic comedy by Audrey Cefaly with music by Matthew M. Nielson. Limited capacity with COVID health safety protocols required.

Through an intoxicating blend of indie/folk music and magical storytelling we are introduced to waitress Lina and Italian immigrant Roberto, an unlikely pair, caught alone in a restaurant after-hours during a late-night thunderstorm. Over wine and conversation, they test the waters of happiness and intimacy, and discover their lives intersecting in surprising ways.

But…will they leap?

Directed by award-winning Nancy Curran Willis, working in collaboration with rising star playwright Cefaly,  The Last Wide Open is a perfect date night choice, that has been called

“Imaginative, vibrant, heart-felt… A mystical, delicate gem of a play.”
Tony Dallas Theatre Reviews, World Premiere, February 2019

“Heart-warming. Sweet. Downright funny.”
