Four-time Tony Awardwinning author Terrence McNally returns with a powerful new play about how far one will go for one's love of the theater. In a small upstate New York town, Lou, a speech and drama teacher, and Jessie, a dog groomer at The Dapper Dog, bring joy to their community through running an amateur theater company. They become obsessed with buying a derelict movie theater and turning it into Captain Lou and Miss Jessie's Magic Theater for Children of All Ages. The only obstacle in reaching their dream is Annabelle Willard -- a terminally ill and manipulative widow who owns half the town. Will these naive dreamers be able to grasp the brass ring, and at what cost?
