11th Hour Theatre Company closes its 2017-2018 season with its MainStage production, Big Red Sun. This World Premiere musical, which the company helped develop is set to run May 31-June 17. Written by John Jiler& Georgia Stitt this emotional new musical will open Monday June 4 at 7 p.m. It is directed by 11th Hour co-founder and Resident Director Megan Nicole O’Brien with Music Direction by 11th Hour regular Dan Kazemi.
O’Brien, when asked what drew her to this show, [said], “Quite simply, the music and the story. John has created a story from scratch that leaves a lasting impact. Totally original musicals, without drawing from some sort of source material, are pretty rare. Georgia’s music is just gorgeous. Every time I’ve been away from the show for a while and I come back and hear the music again, I realize how much I missed it while I was away. It just fills your soul.”
