A House United Productions presents the new collection, billed as "a song cycle of faith and love for our time," directed by Kimberly Vaughn and Dathan B. Williams, with music direction by Dick Gallagher. Expect to hear songs by Carl Allocco, John Bucchino, Craig Carnelia, David Friedman & Amanda McBroom, Dick Gallagher & Lina Koutrakos, Ricky Ian Gordon, Michael Gore & Dean Pitchford, Adam Guettel, Michael Holland, Brain Lasser, Andrew Lippa and Jann Arden Richards.

The cycle's original concept is by Parker Scott and Dathan B. Williams, with additional concepts by Kimberly Vaughn. The show is "set in NYC and explores modern relationships, the trials and the ecstasies of trusting love and the impact the journey has on those around us," according to production notes. "A Son falls in love for the first time. A Mother denies her son is gay. A Sister steals her brother's new found love and a Man torn between them changes their lives forever."

The alternating cast includes Parker Scott, Dathan B. Williams, Billy Eichner, Mary Mossberg, Marilyn O'Connell, Julie Reyburn, Parker Scott, Daniel Spiotta, Scott Tucker and Kimberly Vaughn.
