Our Town


March 12 – April 6, 2014
The Lab Theater

By Thornton Wilder • Music Direction by Denise Prosek • Directed by Peter Rothstein

For 75 years Thornton Wilder’s masterpiece has played a profound role in American culture. Theater Latté Da will honor the play’s 75th anniversary with a unique production. A multi-cultural cast of actor musicians become the citizens of Grover’s Corners as they fall in love, marry, confront mortality and all the while make music. Wilder's profound look at ordinary people living ordinary lives has never been more extraordinary. Theater Latte Da's production will include musical interludes by American masters of popular song such as Irving Berlin, Scott Joplin, Stephen Foster and Charles Ives.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
