Soon

by Nick Blaemire

March 10 – April 26, 2015

Ark

It is the hottest summer in human history and, in a few short months, all water on earth will evaporate. In response, twenty-something Charlie has taken to her couch with only her beloved possessions: peanut butter, Wolf Blitzer and Herschel, the fish. Her mother, roommate and sometimes-boyfriend all attempt to persuade her to leave her apartment and enjoy life. However, as Charlie’‘s memories take over, more complicated reasons for her self-inflicted hibernation emerge as she confronts her deferred dreams and considers the possibility of life and love just outside her door.

Filled with Blaemire’‘s (Glory Days) trademark quirky style and reminiscent of past Signature contemporary musicals [title of show] and The Last Five Years, Soon’‘s youthful humor, energy and wit deliver a searing and sardonic commentary on what to do with the time you have left.

Praise for Glory Days
“Fresh and vivacious……a beaming source of musical energy.” –The Washington Post

This show uses theatrical haze and strobe lights and contains mild use of adult language and themes.
