Artistic Director Justin Gordon shares, “In selecting our 2nd season, Love Loss and Redemption, we are celebrating humanity’s diversity and ability to weather storms together toward a brighter future. Each of our selections examines a central theme of the redemptive power of love–be it romantic, parental, or artistic–and I cannot think of a better message to share with our audiences.
