Through conversations with the show’s conceiver, actors, producer, and iconic director James Lapine, we’ll find out how the show survived a condemned East Village theater, found its footing at Barrington Stage, and then captured the hearts of New York audiences Off-Broadway at Second Stage before making it to Broadway at Circle in the Square.
