I love you. It seemed like a perfect way to start.

THE LAST TIME WE WERE HERE, an intimate new folk rock musical, transports us to a world of dimly lit bars in which a single moment can be transformed into a lingering memory by no more than a guitar and a mic. Jacob, a singer-songwriter on a path toward super-stardom, struggles to make sense of the big moments in his life – most notably the end of his relationship with Grace, a passionate woman fascinated by a romance from the past. Two other characters weave the stories of other couples into this powerful blend of music, love letters, and poetry.

Running Time: 1 hour and 20 minutes, with no intermission.
