The Flea to Premiere I SEE YOU Next Month Off-Broadway

The Flea presents the World Premiere of I SEE YOU by Kate Robin. This romantic comedy will be directed by Flea Artistic Director Jim Simpson. Previews of this limited run Off-Broadway engagement begin November 7 with opening slated for Sunday, November 16.

A disengaged stay-at-home dad and an apocalyptically anxious mom meet in this illicit rom com that spins out of control. In a world headed for disaster, what are the rules?

"I SEE YOU is really about the psychic and emotional stress of living in the cusp of the apocalypse - which is sort of where we are," says Robin who is returning to The Flea for her second production following The Light Outside.

This two-hander features Danielle Slavick (Through the Yellow Hour) and Stephen Barker Turner (The North Pool) with design by Kyle Chepulis (Set), Brian Aldus (Lighting), Claudia Brown (Costumes), and Janie Bullard (Sound).

With I SEE YOU, The Flea Theater continues its commitment to creating theater that is accessible to all. Every production at The Flea will have a limited number of $15 tickets available on a first-come-first-served basis.
