“ELEGANT AND BEAUTIFULLY ORCHESTRATED! A Second Chance brims with swooping and circuitous melodies that tease – and sometimes taunt – the ear.” - American TheaterWeb
“Simple yet sleek – The SWEET story satisfies our craving for a happy ending.” - Theatermania
A stirring musical journey, A SECOND CHANCE tells the New York story of a recent widower and a divorcée who meet in mid-life and mid-crisis. Presented with the overwhelming challenge of freeing themselves from their painful pasts, neither feels deserving of happiness. Yet, the awakening of unanticipated feelings leads them to a possibility they both least expected to find.
*Plus standard $5 per ticket service and $2 per ticket facility fees. Service fees are waived when you buy in person at the Box Office.
