Where the Mountain Meets the Sea

May 21 – July 7, 2024


A poignant, beautiful musical of parallel journeys from the writer of Apple TV+’s The Morning Show and directed by Timothy Douglas (Signature’s The Color Purple).

After he learns of his estranged father’s death, a son recreates the cross-country trip his Haitian immigrant parents took before he was born. As he traces their journey across America, and bonds with the music his father adored, time blurs and erases the distance between them.

Lyrical storytelling and an evocative folk score drive father and son to rediscover love, each other and their everlasting bond.

“You might walk out of Where the Mountain Meets the Sea wanting to take a road trip, or call your dad, or listen to more folk music. One guarantee is that you won’t leave this show feeling nothing.”
