City Lights presents an exciting mix of plays and musicals on the mainstage, along with the Lights & Music Concert Series; the streaming & video series, The Next Stage; and the podcast Filament. Scroll down for photos and video from shows and events. For more information, contact marketing director Rebecca Wallace.
Synopsis: 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.
City Lights is a fully vaccinated company. Masks are recommended in the building, and required at the Miss You Like Hell performances on Feb. 4, 9 and 12.
