In Pike St., Sun vividly brings to life three generations of a Puerto Rican family living on New York's Lower East Side. Evelyn, a mother struggling to hold her life together with both grace and humor as she cares for her immobilized daughter and supports her womanizing father, relies on money from her brother who is serving abroad in Afghanistan. When he comes home, suffering from PTSD, Evelyn fights for her family's healing, redemption and survival in the face of a threatening storm - both natural and man-made.
The artistic team also includes scenic designer Mikiko Suzuki MacAdams (Mira Nair's Monsoon Wedding, Berkeley Repertory Theatre; Katsura Sunshine's Rakugo, New World Stages); costume designer Clint Ramos (Once on This Island and Eclipsed, Broadway); and lighting designer Tyler Micoleau (Be More Chill and The Band's Visit, Broadway). Molly Eustis (Pike St., Off Broadway) is the Production Stage Manager, assisted by Nicole Weigert (Detroit '67, Hartford Stage).
