Playwrights Horizons celebrates the official opening of I Was Most Alive With You, the newest work from Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-nominated Prelude to a Kiss and Light in the Piazza writer Craig Lucas. Directed by Tyne Rafaeli, the play—which examines Deaf culture, addiction, and the nature of human resilience—is performed simultaneously in English and American Sign Language by two separate casts.

Inspired by the biblical Book of Job, I Was Most Alive With You tells the story of a man whose entire existence is threatened by a series of unexpected tests. The New York premiere opened September 24 following previews that began September 1.

The Off-Broadway cast features Marianna Bassham, Michael Gaston, and Russell Harvard (in a role Lucas wrote for him and who reprises his performance from the play's world premiere in Boston), as well as Tony Award nominee Lois Smith, Tad Cooley, Lisa Emery, and Gameela Wright. The shadow cast is made up of Beth Applebaum, Kalen Feeney, Seth Gore, Harold Foxx, Amelia Hensley, Anthony Natale, and Alexandria Wailes.

I Was Most Alive With You received its world premiere at the Huntington Theatre Company in Boston in 2016.
