Krystina Alabado, Kyra Kennedy, Gianna Yanelli and More to Star in MYSTIC PIZZA World Premiere at Ogunquit Playhouse

Trade one quaint New England seacoast village for another this fall with the world premiere of Mystic Pizza at Ogunquit Playhouse. From September 1 through October 2, 2021, Ogunquit Playhouse's 25,000-square-foot, open-air Leary Pavilion will showcase the new musical based on the beloved 1988 MGM romantic comedy with original story and characters by Amy Holden Jones. Mystic Pizza is produced in association with Lively McCabe Entertainment.

In Mystic Pizza, three working-class girls navigate the complex expectations of life, love, and family in a small-town pizza joint serving everyone from townies to the privileged country club set. And what's in that secret sauce, you ask? The hits of the '80s and '90s, from Cyndi Lauper to Robert Palmer! Tickets are on sale now at ogunquitplayhouse.org/mystic-pizza.
