Adapted from Kent Haruf’s novel, Our Souls at Night, this World Premiere musical tells the joyful and inspiring story of a man and a woman who, in advanced age, come together in a search for happiness and family.

In the small town of Holt, Colorado, Addie Moore pays an unexpected visit to a neighbor, Louis Waters. Her husband died years ago, as did his wife, and in such a small town they naturally have known of each other for decades. Addie and Louis have long been living alone in empty houses, the nights achingly lonely, especially with no one to talk with.

But maybe that could change? When Addie tries to make a connection with her neighbor, the two begin sleeping in bed together platonically, with the innocent goal of alleviating their shared loneliness. As their relationship deepens, however, they each deal with grief and loss, and a real romance begins to blossom and a beautiful story of second chances unfolds. At its core, BTG says, On Cedar Street is ultimately a human story about longing, pulling loving hearts together and making families whole.

This production Stephen Bogardus as Louis Waters, Ben Roseberry as Gene Moore, Dan Teixeira as Russell Beckman, Lauren Ward as Addie Moore, Lenny Wolpe as Lloyd Beckman and Addison the dog as Charlie.

The creative team of On Cedar Street consists of direction by Susan H. Schulman, choreography and associate direction by Terry Berliner, music direction by Kristin Stowell, scenic design by Reid Thompson, costume design by Alex Allison, sound design by Julian Evans and projections design by Shawn Boyle.

The play runs August 12 to September 2, Tuesday to Saturday at 7 p.m. and most Saturdays, Sundays and Wednesdays at 2 p.m. For this production, Wednesday 2 p.m. matinees are mask required performances.
