"It’s winter in Almost, Maine," according to press notes. "Salty waitresses, lost visitors, tough and not-so–tough women and men crack open some beer, start their snowmobiles, pitch a tent, and gather under the northern lights to try to make sense of this strange thing called love. Funny, sexy, sad, and ever-searching, the people of Almost, Maine are stalked by dreams and fears alike as they ante up again and again determined to get past the 'almost' to capture the real. Love is local and the world is strange in this midwinter night’s dream."

In a statement Cariani said, “I'm incredibly excited to bring Almost, Maine back to New York City with Transport Group. Acting in my long-time collaborator Jack Cummings III's production is a thrilling opportunity and will be a milestone in the journey of the play.”

Show times will be Tuesday-Thursday at 7 PM, Friday at 8 PM, Saturday at 2 PM and 8 PM and Sunday at 3 PM.
