Following its critically acclaimed production of Gorey, Life Life Jacket Theatre Company is back Off-Broadway with a new work about life inside Florida’s Miracle Village, a rural community for sex offenders. Weaving verbatim interviews and found text with traditional Methodist hymns and original songs, the show presents an intricate portrait of this rarely spoken-of, marginalized American town.
America is Hard to See is written by Travis Russ with music by Priscilla Holbrook. Performances run January 30–February 24 at the HERE Arts Center.
Research and development for America is Hard to See is by Russ, Anthony Dvarskas, and Amelia Parenteau. Lighting design is by Solomon Weisbard, costume design is by Andrea Hood, and scenic design is by Russ.
Tickets are available by visiting LifeJacketTheatre.org or calling (212) 352-3101. Tickets are also available at the HERE box office, located at 145 6th Avenue, New York.
