THE DARK I KNOW Set for MITF, 7/21-8/4

"THE DARK I KNOW", winner of the 2013 Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival National Musical Theater Award, takes the stage next week at the Midtown InterNational Theatre Festival.

Still reeling from the loss of her young son, she and her adopted son leave Berlin and move to Frankfurt to start anew. There she meets Aaron Freeman and his family. As they establish a relationship, they discover that this isn't the first time their lives have intersected.

"THE DARK I KNOW" is playing at the June Havoc Theatre, 312 West 36th St., New York, New York. Performances on July 21, 27 and 28 are sold out. Tickets are still available for shows on Wednesday, July 31 at 8:30 pm; Saturday, August 3 at 3 pm; and Sunday, August 4 at 8 pm. Tickets for $18 can be purchased at
