by Justin J Sacramone - Jul 17, 2016

Kendra Ellis-Connor is living every mother's worst nightmare. Her son is missing. It's now four o'clock in the morning and she's at the police station trying to get answers. The officer working the nightshift is useless, her ex-husband isn't picking up his phone and the speculations are beginning to consume her. Her son's disappearance and the station's lack of information raise questions. Kendra has a hunch why. Both she and her son are black.

At this point in our process, the tumultuous weather looks a lot like a group of guys rolling around on the floor, but that's nothing a of week of rehearsal and some great lighting can't fix! From this point forward, we arrre in "go" mode until we open. Yesterday was our last real day off until opening night and it sort of feels like we arrre actually heading into a crazy storm of our own. (more...)
