"Its message of compassion and perseverance is delivered through a gorgeous score beautifully performed by this cast and band."

"It has been a great privilege to adapt Tom McCarthy's beautiful film for the stage, and I am incredibly grateful to Sean and everyone at Concord Theatricals for preserving this score, which has been captured so exquisitely by this extraordinary group of artists," said Tom Kitt. "I look forward to reliving the passion and beauty that this great company brought to the piece, as well as Jamshied Sharifi's gorgeous orchestrations, for years to come."

The musical is based on the acclaimed Groundswell Productions and Participant Media Motion Picture written and directed by Academy Award winner Thomas McCarthy. Widowed and living alone, Walter is a middle-aged, white college professor who has lost his sense of purpose.
