Ten lost souls slip in and out of one another’s arms, other and same sex, in a musical exploration of love’s bittersweet hold, connected by the embrace of their last liaison. Hello Again is adapted from Michael John LaChiusa’s musical originally commissioned by Lincoln Center in 1994. Michael John’s musical was inspired by Arthur Schnitzler’s play, Der Reigen (which has a long history of adaptations & controversy), and by the great Max Ophüls’ 1950 film La Ronde. Hello Again stars 6 time Tony winner Audra McDonald, Emmy winner Martha Plimpton, Jenna Ushkowitz, Cheyenne Jackson, Rumer Willis, and T.R. Knight, among others. Hello Again is a unique musical in that century-long tradition and spirit of La Ronde but with, unquestionably, a more contemporary twist.
