Stephen Cole and Matthew Martin Ward’s award winning Off Broadway and London musical is back for one-night, with Mary Jo Dugaw, School of Rock’s Jenn Gambatese, Phantom’s Tim Jerome and Joshua Hinck. With the composer at the keyboard, the author directing and the original Off- Broadway costumes designed by Bottari and Case, this romantic musical, based on a Thomas Hardy story, will sweep you away to 19th century England, where a letter can change four lives and “nothing will ever be the same.”
