The Music Theatre of Connecticut, an Equity acting company fueled by leading talent from Broadway, celebrates 25 years of award-winning performances with a winter production of John Cariani's popular romantic comedy Almost, Maine. Set in a tiny, mythical town on a midwinter's night, the tale explores how love appears, disappears, and morphs into a bat when dawn approaches. Nineteen characters populate nearly a dozen vignettes, which intertwine to reveal how chilly weather, a remote location, and the magical glow of the Northern Lights comprise an ideal recipe for both romance and heartbreak. The plot unfolds in a 50-seat studio theater, whose prime sight lines let guests glimpse the actors' subtle gestures and tattoos of Laurence Olivier.
