Laugh It Up, Stare It Down tells the story of Cleo and Joe – the meeting of their minds, the entwining of their hearts and their life-long search for a meaningful point in a universe too random to have one. It’s an unusual journey marked by a missing baby, a forged painting, a house invader, a tidal wave, and frozen pistou. Find out if they rise above their outrageous fortune and find ecstatic love. Laugh It Up, Stare It Down stars Jayce Bartok (subUrbia) and Broadway’s Katya Campbell (Disgraced). New York’s Cherry Lane Theatre hosts a limited engagement of this new comedy-drama by Alan Hruska, helmed by director-actor Chris Eigeman, best known for his lead roles in such films as Metropolitan, Barcelona and The Last Days of Disco.
