Three women are wracked with grief after the passing of their loved ones. Incapable of moving on, they turn to renowned medium Jason Richards for a group psychic session in hopes of making contact with the spirits of their beloved dead. The spirits do indeed materialize during the reading—but only for the audience, as the women can’t see or hear them. And those spirits, trapped in limbo between here and the hereafter, share something in common with their living mourners: they’re incapable of moving on, too. But as the session unfolds—through many a joke, tear, and song—both the living and the dead find closure as audiences laugh through their tears.
Hereafter Musical has been a labor of love for writers Vinnie Favale and Frankie Keane, who spent six years bringing the cathartic drama to the stage. If Favale’s name rings a bell, it could be because he serves as the Vice President of Late Night Entertainment at CBS and was an executive producer on CBS’s The Howard Stern Show. With an ace creative team that includes co-writer and songwriter/actress Frankie Keane, music director Seth Farber, and acclaimed director/choreographer Terry Berliner, Favale and Keane’s vision of “a tearjerker that leaves you happy and hopeful” has been achieved.
The Theater Center
Although The Theater Center is one of the more frequented hotspots in the Off-Broadway scene, it's surprisingly intimate. As the home of the world's longest running musical (The Fantasticks) and New York's longest running play (Perfect Crime), most visitors would expect a coliseum experience that requires extra-strength opera glasses. But thanks to The Theater Center's two 200-seat auditoriums, audiences get to savor some of the theater world's biggest treats without squinting.
