A Broadway smash, winner of the 2002 Drama Desk awards for Best Music and Best Lyrics…. The story of love from beginning to end to beginning…. A “he sang/she sang” poignant tale of romance gone right and then wrong between a hip, Jewish New York writer, and his struggling actress girlfriend — his Shiksa Goddess (in one of the show’s many memorable numbers). An evening filled with some of the most beautiful music and wittiest lyrics you will ever hear.
“When this show grabs you, it grabs you hard.” — New York Times.
“A very funny, deeply affecting portrait of love lost and found.” — Washington Post

Stefanee Chevalier as Female #1
has been in Tucson only for a year but has had so much fun with the shows she’s done here. You may recognize her as Lady of the Lake from Spamalot, or her own namesake in the production of Godspell. Stefanee’s other credits include Kira in Xanadu, Charity in Sweet Charity, I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change!, and Lilliane Le Fleur in Nine. Thank you to all the cast and crew who have pulled this great show together!
Cisiany Olivar - Female #2
is excited to be working with Roadrunner Theatre again. She has immersed herself in the arts from a young age. She would like to quote Stella Adler- “The theatre was created to tell people the truth about life and the social situation.”
Lucas Gonzales - Male #1
is very excited to be working again with the Roadrunner. He last appeared earlier this year in I Hate Hamlet as Andrew and has worked around Tucson over the past decade with various other theaters including The Rogue Theatre, The NOW Theatre, St. Francis Theatre, and Beowulf Alley Theatre (RIP). Lucas is a graduate of The University of Arizona and was involved with performances by the Arizona Repertory Theatre and various one-acts and student films put together by the Theatre Arts department. Lucas is also a working DJ/emcee who you might see at a private party or a downtown Tucson nightclub. (Shout out to Bear Down Entertainment & YNOT Entertainment.) Thank you for coming to this creation of ours. As you’re about to be severely reminded, relationships are hard - but watching this show will be the easiest thing you do this week. For Emma, my brand new niece.
