UW Theatre and Dance Presents Quirky Romantic Comedy

Jan. 31, 2008 -- The University of Wyoming Department of Theatre and Dance will present the romantic comedy "Almost, Maine," Feb. 8-14 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Feb. 10, at 2 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center Studio Theatre.

Tickets cost $14 for the public, $11 for seniors (60 and older) and $7 for students.

The play, written by John Cariani, focuses on the pursuit of love or something like it among the lonely inhabitants of a remote northern town in Maine's potato country. Professor Leigh Selting directs the play.

Cariani, a Tony-nominated actor, is known for his work in "Fiddler on the Roof" and on "Law & Order." The play originally debuted in 2004 and then became an off-Broadway hit, receiving rave reviews for its offbeat and often poignant take on life and love in a small town.

The play takes place in a fictional town in Maine where, in nine quirky vignettes, the love-starved residents fall in and out of love in surprising and hilarious ways.

For tickets, call (307) 766-6666 or visit www.uwyo.edu/finearts.
