Described by Edward Albee as "the greatest American play ever written," Our Town follows the Webb and Gibbs families as their children go through life together. This version is multiracial and bilingual, with characters speaking in English and Spanish. Reflecting the diversity of the communities we live in, the play retains its soulful reflections on the beauty and transience of life on earth.

“You have never seen an Our Town quite like [this] exquisite, emotionally potent production... The language differences give the families a special, specific way of communicating, of underscoring their bonds.” – Miami Herald
