Chance encounters with a medley of characters along the way brings them closer to understanding what sets them apart — and what connects them forever. Featuring compelling original songs that are every bit as diverse and eclectic as America, Miss You Like Hell is a new musical that exudes the joy, love and frustration of being a family in a changing country.

Renowned musician and activist Erin McKeown joins director Lear deBessonet (Public Theatre’s The Winter’s Tale) and Pulitzer Prize winner Quiara Alegría Hudes (Water by the Spoonful, In the Heights) in launching this new American musical at the Playhouse.

Librettist Bridget Carpenter is an accomplished playwright and an award-winning writer for television’s acclaimed Parenthood and Friday Night Lights.
