When introverted, 30-something computer repairman Dan finds a potential spark with outgoing t-shirt designer Lindsay, his attempts at a relationship are thwarted by the Technicolor world in his head. This world-premiere musical goes where no musical has gone before, bringing to life the circus of judgmental, neurotic, ever-changing characters that rule an ordinary man's mind. Up Here is an ambitious, razor-sharp musical comedy about recognizing your place in the universe - and maybe even finding happiness.
Up Here is a new musical comedy featuring book, music and lyrics by the husband-and-wife composing team of Robert Lopez (The Book of Mormon, Avenue Q) and Kristen Anderson-Lopez (In Transit), recipients of the 2014 Academy Award for Best Original Song for their hit song, "Let It Go," from the Disney animated film Frozen.
The cast is led by Broadway's Betsy Wolfe (Broadway's Bullets over Broadway, The Mystery of Edwin Drood) and newcomer Matt Bittner (Public Theater's Much Ado About Nothing), along with Broadway alums Andrew Call, Giovanni Cozic, Jeff Hiller, Gizel Jimenez, Zonya Love (Playhouse's Side Show), Sarah Meahl, Eric Petersen, Devin Ratray, Devere Rogers, Charles South and Nick Verina.
Running Time: Two hours and 15 minutes, with one intermission
