Actors Alexandria Chapes and Christian Stevenson talk with Suzan and Buzz about University Theatre's upcoming production of "Almost, Maine."

Almost, Maine

By John Cariani

Directed by David Furumoto

On a cold, clear night in the remote northernmost part of Maine, the residents of a small town discover the sparks of love. Perhaps. Maybe. Almost. Under the magic spell of the northern lights, John Cariani’s play depicts a series of encounters that offer the funny, poignant, and mysterious ways people fall in and out of love. UW-Madison’s University Theatre offers a refreshing breath of cold, crisp Northern air for a romantic summer production.

“A whimsical approach to the joys and perils of romance. Magical happenings bloom beneath the snowdrifts. ALMOST, MAINE explores the thunderclap of love and the scorched earth that sometimes follows.” – NY Times (2006)

The cast features UW students Erik Bergeson, Alexandria Chapes, Jessie Reynolds, and Christian Stevenson as the various residents of Almost, Maine.

Produced by University Theatre (UW-Madison) at U.W. Vilas Hall, 821 University Avenue, Madison
