In order to minimize the risks associated with exposure to Covid-19 for our cast and crew, and out of an abundance of caution as new variants emerge, we have decided to postpone the opening night of Almost, Maine to Saturday 12/4. Our Saturday performance will now be a celebration of taking the stage again with the safety of our cast, crew, and audiences central to our evening. This opening night will continue to feature an open bar, Maine themed snacks, and a hot chocolate bar.
On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost's residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night's dream.
EPIC is excited to bring to life ALMOST, MAINE, by John Cariani; a show about hope, love, and connection. Something we are all seeking as we look into the future.
The show will take place at the Jeffrey and Paula Gural Theater at A.R.T./NY and run from Wednesday, December 4th through Sunday, December 12th Saturday’s performance will be coupled with an open bar, Maine themed snacks and hot chocolate for all ticket holders in celebration of EPIC’s return to the stage. There will be two scheduled ASL performances, Sunday 12/05 and Thursday 12/09.
All audience members are required to show proof of vaccination to attend the in-person performance and must wear a mask at all times.
