Truly Unique

This musical uses the podcast format to create a truly unique theatre experience. The transitions from dialogue to song are effortless, the characters are thoughtfully crafted and complex, and the songs are genuinely moving. Like Dear Evan Hansen and Come From Away, this musical tackles an emotional subject with great care and is not your typical “musical” fare. The folk-inspired music production and arrangements are wonderful and perfectly compliment the winter-y setting. It really takes you there. Highly recommend!!

Need more

Binged this entire show in 2 days. The music and plot is amazing. Not very predictable like some. Good amount of suspense and humor. Definitely need a sound track though!
