Why you should see Miss You Like Hell

Because we fell in love with Quiara Alegría Hudes’ writing with In the Heights.
Because it’ll inspire you to go on a road trip with your mom.
Because a New York Times critic called it “a powerful example of what musicals do best: explore the unprotected border where individual needs and social issues intermix.”


When Beatriz shows up at her 16-year-old daughter Olivia’s house at 4 a.m. and invites her on an epic road trip, they haven’t seen each other in four years. But Beatriz is an undocumented immigrant about to be deported to Mexico, and time is running out. From Philadelphia to California, from estranged to reunited, Beatriz and Olivia take a transformative journey, meeting a diverse array of Americans with their own stories to tell. An important and intimate new musical rich with family, humor and heart.
