More Information


You know them all: the needy ex-girlfriend, the guy with a commitment problem, the ex-trophy wife, the hermaphrodite … O.K., perhaps not the last one, but these and several other easily recognizable characters all come to the stage in the brand new musical, “So Here’s the Thing …”

With a cast of eleven distinct personalities, the play tells its entertaining story from four separate perspectives, all of which soon overlap.

The first tale, for instance, is told by Jade Hillman, the rebellious teenage daughter with a pill-popping, alcoholic, several-surgeries-later mother and an infatuation with her gay best friend. Several scenes later, her brother Paul returns home from college with his roommate Shayne. While Paul suffers the perils of falling for the wrong girl, Shayne, born a hermaphrodite, is faced with a new hurdle as he discovers yet another “condition.” Other characters include the twentysomething best-friends-since-forever girls, the gymrat, the “nice guy,” and the bisexual player.

Each of their stories eventually meld into the surprising and sobering climax as they speak on issues of commitment, timing, choices and fate.
