Photo Flash: Cleveland Public Theatre Presents EVERYTHING IS OKAY (AND OTHER HELPFUL LIES)

Cleveland Public Theatre (CPT) is proud to present the world premiere of Everything is Okay (and other helpful lies). The production is onstage from October 20 - November 10, 2018, in CPT's James Levin Theatre.

In this hot mess musical, a group of close friends struggles to navigate the tragedies of life. Guided by poor decision-making and way too much alcohol, these buddies try anything to find happiness while the ties of friendship fray. This dark musical comedy is a celebration of the not-so-happy ways in which we persevere, grow, and change-whether we want to or not. Cheers!

According to CPT's Executive Artistic Director, Raymond Bobgan: "In the theatre, we use the word 'proud' a lot, but there's no better word for me to describe my feelings as we move to open this brand new musical. I am so proud of Cleveland Public Theatre's commitment to women artists, and I'm so proud of these two brave women who have shared their stories in such a candid way with such original voices."

Everything is Okay (and other helpful lies) was developed as part of the Nord Family Foundation Catapult Fellowship which included showings in CPT's Entry Point new play festival, and Test Flight, CPT's workshop production series. Melissa Crum and Caitlin Lewins were both Joan Yellen Horvitz Director Fellows and completed the Theatre Creation and Directing Classes taught by Raymond Bobgan, CPT Executive Artistic Director.
