'Simply Heavenly' - Plays Out Loud! Reading Series


On Stage

Aug 23–Aug 24, 2019

Plays Out Loud! is the Union for Contemporary Art's Performing Arts Collective readers theatre series that gives directors, actors, and audiences an opportunity to experience live theater focusing solely on the words. All performances are done with script in hand followed by a Q&A session with the director and cast.

Simply Heavenly is a musical comedy with book and lyrics by Langston Hughes and music by David Martin, based on Hughes' novel Simple Takes A Wife and other Simple stories. The setting is Paddy’s Bar, a refuge where the hard working or out of work regulars all have a good enough reason to sing the blues.

***As part of The Union's broad commitment to making the arts accessible to all, regardless of financial means, our theatre productions follow a Radical Hospitality ticketing model. If ticket cost is prohibitive, a limited number of cost-free tickets are also available at The Union box office on a first-come-first-served basis on the day of the performance.
