A romantic comedy that could thaw even the biggest Maine snow drift. Welcome to Almost, Maine, a town that's so far north, it's almost not in the United States—it's almost in Canada. And it almost doesn't exist. Because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it’s just…Almost. One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while the northern lights hover in the sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in the strangest ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. Love is lost, found, and confounded. And life for the people of Almost, Maine will never be the same. Almost Maine: It’s love. But not quite.

"Sweet, poignant and witty. Nearly perfect." – The New York Daily News

"Almost, Maine lets in a cold blast of hot love!” – The Los Angeles Daily News


Much Ado About Nothing

Much Ado About Nothing

American Shakespeare Center Touring Company

While the villainous Don John devises a scheme to shatter the nuptials of Claudio and Hero, the young lovers conspire to trick Beatrice and Benedick into admitting their much-denied love. In this powerful comedy full of sparkling wit, Shakespeare gives us the joy of love won and the ache of love lost. He makes us laugh and breaks our hearts, then magically puts them back together again.
