A Little More Alive is a captivating new pop musical in which two estranged brothers reunite at their mother's funeral. An unexpected discovery upends every memory they have - and it becomes their mission to learn the truth about their family; but, along the way, Nate and Jeremy find that no one is exempt from the gray area between right and wrong.
Staring in the musical are: Van Hughes (American Idiot) as Nate Fuller; Michael Tacconi (Bare) as Jeremy Fuller; Lindsay Mendez (Dogfight) as Lizzie; Daniel Jenkins (Angels in America) as Gene Fuller; and Kayla Foster (Spring Awakening) as Molly. Tony Award-nominee Sheryl Kaller (Next Fall, Mothers and Sons) directs.
