LAUGH IT UP, STARE IT DOWN tells the story of Cleo and Joe -- the meeting of their minds, the entwining of their hearts, and their life-long search for a meaningful point in a universe too random to have one. It's a journey marked by a missing baby, a forged painting, a house invader, a tidal wave, and frozen pistou. Will they rise above their outrageous fortune? Will they find ecstatic love?

LAUGH IT UP, STARE IT DOWN features scenic design by Kevin Judge (Irena's Vow, The Civil War), costume design by Jennifer Caprio (Spelling Bee, Joseph...Dreamcoat), lighting design by Matthew J. Fick (Will Rogers Follies, Spamalot), and original music and sound design by Peter Salett (Heart of Mine and Forgetting Sarah Marshallsoundtracks). Casting is by Barden / Schnee Casting.
