A mother & daughter's journey of a lifetime into the heart of America.
Whip-smart and deeply imaginative, 16-year-old Olivia hasn't seen her mother, Beatriz, for years. Now on the brink of deportation and hoping to make up for lost time, Beatriz cajoles her daughter into coming along on a cross-country expedition with a deadline. An intense, rambunctious new musical by Pulitzer Prize winner Quiara Alegría Hudes ("In the Heights," "Water by the Spoonful") and acclaimed singer/songwriter Erin McKeown, "Miss You Like Hell" brings audiences on a desperate, joyous, uniquely American road trip.
"Powerful & complex. A fresh take on the American road story, filled with people and ideas we rarely get to see onstage." —The New York Times
"Honest and authentic... an unforgettable musical journey." —DCMetro Theater Arts
"It's a treat to spend time with complex Latinx characters who buck stereotypes." —Time Out NY
Our 2 pm performance on Sunday, Feb. 27 will feature Audio Description for blind and visually impaired patrons, and Open Captioning for Deaf and hard of hearing patrons. Audio Description is a form of audio-visual translation, using natural pauses to insert narrative that translates the visual image into an audible form. Patrons use headsets to hear the audio description. Open Captioning provides the audience with an electronic text display to the side of the stage, displaying lyrics, dialogue, and sound effects in real time.
