This engaging musical tells the story of Elizabeth, who moves back to New York in search of a fresh start. Elizabeth attempts to plan out every detail so her new life can be perfect, but unexpected choices and random events impact her world in ways she never thought possible. Menzel will be joined in the show's cast by her original Rent co-star Anthony Rapp and fellow Tony Award winner LaChanze. Learn More

A small-town diner is in for quite a night when a blizzard strands a busload of unusual passengers on its doorstep. While the diner owner may finally have her chance to scratch a long-held itch for the macho bus driver, the other guests have their own agendas: a lovesick rodeo rider has kidnapped a nightclub singer, a pretentious Ph.D. who is looking for love in all the wrong places, and a Shakespeare-quoting teenage waitress might get her first crack at romance. In the course of a turbulent night, will it be love or mayhem that survives the storm?
Olney is honored to welcome Austin Pendleton to the directorial helm of this production. Mr. Pendleton is an accomplished writer, actor, and director; he has directed three Tony-nominated Broadway productions, written three plays, and won an Obie Award for his acting.
