About the play

This musical, by the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning team of composer Tom Kitt and lyricist Brian Yorkey, explores the life of Elizabeth, a newly divorced woman who returns to New York City to start over. As she reconnects with old friends Kate and Lucas, she discovers that they have quite different opinions on what directions she should take and how to redefine herself. Elizabeth has to decide if she will seek out new adventures or build her professional career in the city. The musical plays out both possibilities and encourages the audience to ask the same questions.
