From Massachusetts to Costa Rica, we follow a teenager fleeing the aftermath of a tragic accident back home. Her guilt and confusion over the incident follow her to her uncle's isolated retreat in the jungle, where she fills his silent home with the sound of teenage chatter. Having sought out the sanctuary of Costa Rica as a refuge from his own guilt, the reclusive uncle is able to connect with his niece in a way nobody else could. Together, they come to terms with their own pasts and lay the ground for moving forward. The Steppenwolf Theatre Company's production of Slowgirl will surprise you, touch you and make you think.

AMAZING one of the best shows I have seen in years. The music was great and the leads amazing. total energy and I swore I was watching keely smith and Louis Prima
The show should be sold out every night and should go on broadway. Better than the Jersey Boys
SPECTACULAR and I would go see it again

Inspired by the birth of Las Vegas and the lounge acts that made the Strip a legendary breeding ground for entertainers, Louis & Keely is a vintage love story set to the beat of jazz. Based on true events, Louis & Keely Live at the Sahara examines the hard-won career of 20th Century music icon Louis Prima and how he turned 16 year old Keely Smith into a star.
Nominated for 14 Los Angeles theater awards, Louis & Keely Live at the Sahara has become one of LA's most popular original musicals with both critics and audiences alike.
The show has added a new director, Academy Award winner Taylor Hackford, a new book, and several additional characters (including Frank Sinatra in a major supporting role) since its Hollywood run. With a live jazz band on stage every night, popular standards such as "That Old Black Magic," "Hey Boy, Hey Girl," "Just a Gigolo", "I Wish You Love" and "Embraceable You" will keep your toes tapping all night long.
