"Ever wonder who that stranger is sitting next to you?" ask Layover press notes. "What is their story? What are they hiding? Shellie and Dex dare to answer these questions after their flight is delayed on a snowy Thanksgiving night. What they discover about themselves, and each other, sends both of their lives into upheaval."

The season includes the currently-running Invisible Thread, which officially opens Dec. 2, as well as the upcoming Lydia R. Diamond play Smart People and the new musical Dear Evan Hansen, featuring music by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.
