Opening was last night, February 4, and you can check out photos from the big night below!
It's winter in Almost, Maine. Salty waitresses, lost visitors, tough and not-so-tough women and men crack open some beer, start their snowmobiles, pitch a tent, and gather under the northern lights to try to make sense of this strange thing called love. Funny, sexy, sad, and ever-searching, the people of Almost, Maine are stalked by dreams and fears alike as they ante up again and again determined to get past the "almost" to capture the real. Love is local and the world is strange in this midwinter night's dream.
Almost, Maine premiered at the Portland Stage Company in Portland, Maine in 2004 where it played to critical acclaim and broke box office records. The play opened at off-Broadway's Daryl Roth Theatre on January 12, 2006 and closed on February 12, 2006. Since its short-lived New York debut, Almost, Maine has become one of the most produced plays around the world. It has received over 2000 productions across the United States and internationally, having been translated into eleven languages, and produced in over 15 countries. Transport Group's production is the play's first New York revival.Photo Credit: Jennifer Broski
