"Nothing changes if nothing changes." -Water by the Spoonful
In this moth's video feature, Jesse and Dave are in Union to talk to some of the multifaceted characters of the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama "Water by the Spoonful," now making its New Jersey debut at Premiere Stages at Kean University. Written by Quiara Alegría Hudes and directed by Kel Haney, "Water by the Spoonful" paints a portrait of redemption and forgiveness in this moving, humorous, relatable show. The tale follows Elliot, an Iraq War vet, his cousin Yazmin, a recent divorcee, and Odessa, Elliott's estranged mother who has found her escape in a new online family of fellow addicts. As the fractured family negotiates the limitations of loyalty, friendship and community, they also discover acceptance and grace.
"Water by the Spoonful" will be performed through July 31st in the Zella Fry Theatre on the Kean University main campus. For tickets, call the Kean Stage Box Office at 908.737.7469 or visit Premiere Stages online at www.kean.edu/premierestages.
