“Now. Here. This.” is a funny and touching specimen. Four friends go on a musical journey through time, space, and relationships as they take in the exhibits. They explore and evolve, tackling issues of friendship, hoarding, hiding, living, dying, and middle school. And dinosaurs.
Director Aaron C. Wade chose Now. Here. This. for his return to the A2CT stage because “it promotes an important philosophy about appreciating what is going on in your life in the present.” Wade goes on to say “Whether you’re worried about your path to success, the opinions of the people you meet, or the mistakes you’ve made in the past just stop once in a while and look at what you have.”
“Now. Here. This.” features the talents of cast members Emily Courcy, Zachary James Morgan, Joshua R. Smith, and Zoe Van Slooten.
