IN PIECES: A New Musical

by Joey Contreras

Presented by Weber State Theatre

When

Price: General Admission - $15;

"IN PIECES: A New Musical" by Joey Contreras reflects on the romantic journeys of eight individuals, as they share, ponder and look back on their chosen paths and partners along the way. Set in New York City. The scary excitement of being vulnerable and saying yes to whatever adventure is ahead. The magical first kiss. An unlikely friendship. Well-kept secrets. The monotony. The rebound. An awkward reunion. All these pieces come together to create a universal remembrance of what it’s like to be young and learning in love. Regional Premiere.
