Rick Jacobs (Eating Raoul, Golden Boy) directs the two-person production that runs through Aug. 2 at the June Havoc Theatre.
Featuring a score by Jan-Erik Sääf and a libretto by Owen Robertson, the musical is described as such: "It's 2009. In London, a policewoman is looking for a real man, and a young lad is just looking for fun. In New York, a husband is trying to find his true identity, and a wife is afraid to shatter a perfect illusion. This comedy/drama asks what does it take to connect to people when we have a million ways to communicate but are losing the skill to talk face-to-face?"
The 90-minute English-language presentation of Connect/Disconnect is based on the original Swedish version that featured a libretto by Ola Hörling. The musical has been in development for ten years with incarnations in Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Estonia and Germany.
