From Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Quiara Alegría Hudes (In the Heights) comes a new musical as big as America and as intimate as love between a mother and her daughter.

Beatriz arrives in Philadelphia to convince her estranged 16 year-old daughter Olivia to join her on a road trip to California. Along the way, they encounter a mosaic of characters as diverse and weird as America itself, but the hard truth of Beatriz’s undocumented status and pending deportation to Mexico threatens to build a wall between them. With sharp comedy and a winning genre-defying score by folk-rock star and former AS220 resident artist Erin McKeown, Miss You Like Hell is an American story for our time.

Miss You Like Hell is presented March 5-29 at The Wilbury Theatre Group, 40 Sonoma Court, Providence RI. Tickets are $15-$38. For the complete performance schedule call or visit The Wilbury Theatre Group online at thewilburygroup.org.
