Fifth Row Center puts on comedic love story

POSTED: March 7, 2013 1:30 a.m.

On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine.

As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways.

Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night’s dream performed by the members of Fifth Row Center in Flowery Branch.

The cast and crew of "Almost, Maine" will present their version of the production March 8 through March 17 at the Fifth Row Center Studio in downtown Flowery Branch.

The play written by John Cariani has been performed on Broadway to rave reviews. The New York Times called it a "whimsical approach to the joys and perils of romance. Magical happenings bloom beneath the snowdrifts."

And the Star-Ledger calls it a "charmer" exclaiming "unexpected magic lingers in the air like someone’s breath on a cold winter’s night. John Cariani aims for the heart by way of the funny bone."
