FAR FROM HEAVEN is an operatic musical, which transports us to 1957 to meet the Whitakers, a nearly perfect young couple with a beautiful home in the suburbs and two young children. They are living the American dream, or so it seems. Issues desperately hidden in the 1950s still surface today. These issues cause the couple’s life to unravel as they try to hold the seams of their dream together. A sumptuous score by Scott Frankel sets the couple’s life to music ranging from moments of lighthearted charm to heart-melting passion. You may not yet be familiar with this story, but you will never forget it.
