The award-winning Theatre for the New City in association with the cell want to take the show to the next level. Yes, you read The Hive's great reviews on our sister blog last summer, so you know it's going to be incredible.

Gaines, Fernando Gambaroni, Shira Gregory, Meghan Grace O'Leary, Marissa Parness, Glenn Quentin, Guy Rader, Michael Raver and Alan Winner.
