Three playful one-acts uncover some very private behavior with wit, poignance, and sparkling music! (Think Sex and the City meets The Twilight Zone.) THE COMPANION, SAFE WORD, and MASQUERADE explore the future of love, sex, and need with a clever balance of humor and drama. Their contemporary characters collide at the intersection of power and desire to reveal the true longings of the human heart, and the score is beguilingly melodic and every bit as complex as they are. Sexy, funny, and a little bit naughty, THREE WAY is a surprising theatrical experience you won’t want to miss!
Music by Robert Paterson, libretto by David Cote
