"When The Lights Went Out tells the story of the night of the Northeast blackout of 2003 when six New Yorkers connect through interwoven stories," press notes state. "In the darkness, two strangers fall in love during an epic walk across Manhattan; an older couple marooned in their apartment must finally grapple with their past; and a conflicted Iraqi immigrant trapped in an elevator chases memories of her lost son and her homeland through the shadows."
The creative team includes Dane Laffrey (set), Ilona Somogyi (costumes), David Weiner (lighting), Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen (sound) and Warren Adams (movement consultant).
