Performances begin October 25 at La Jolla Playhouse for Miss You Like Hell, a musical by Pulitzer Prize winner Quiara Alegría Hudes and Erin McKeown. The new work, which stars Tony nominee Daphne Rubin-Vega and Krystina Alabado (Lazarus, American Psycho), is billed as a “vibrant and affecting” musical about family, full of joy, love, and frustration.

Miss You Like Hell features a book and lyrics by Hudes and music by singer/songwriter McKeown. With direction by Lear deBessonet (The Odyssey) and choreography by Danny Mefford (Fun Home), performances are set to run through December 4 in the Mandell Weiss Theatre.

The complete cast also features Cliff Bemis, Vanessa A. Jones, David Patrick Kelly, Julio Monge, Olivia Oguma, Victor Chan, Cashae Monya, and Kürt Norby.

“When a free-spirited mother convinces her whip-smart teenage daughter to join her on a drive across the country, neither can imagine where it will take them,“ read production notes for Miss You Like Hell. “Chance encounters with a motley crew of characters along the way brings them closer to understanding what sets them apart—and what connects them forever.“

The creative team includes Julie McBride, music director; Donyale Werle, scenic designer; Emilio Sosa, costume designer; Tyler Micoleau, lighting designer; Dan Moses Schreier, sound designer; Gabriel Greene, dramaturg; Tara Rubin Casting; and Evangeline Rose Whitlock, stage manager.

Tickets are now on sale at LaJollaPlayhouse.org or by calling (858) 550-1010.
