Book + Lyrics by Audrey Cefaly | Music by Matthew M. Nielson
September 2 – 25, 2021

Fate plays its hand in this romantic regional premiere play by Audrey Cefaly that features original songs by Matthew M. Nielson. Lina and Roberto have been working together for years but rarely talk. When a late-night thunderstorm finds them alone in the restaurant at closing time, they find their lives intersecting in surprising and mystical ways. The Last Wide Open imagines how the universe conspires to bring us together.
