20 Lovers. 10 Affairs. 1 Century.

Experience the world of Michael John LaChiusa's Hello Again: the passion, sex, and power of 10 love affairs, one from each decade of the 20th Century. Witness The Whore, The Young Thing, The Senator, The Soldier and others as they navigate each new sexual entanglement. Love and desire clash as each character seeks elusive connections. Inspired by Arthur Schnitzler's controversial 1897 play, La Ronde, 5-time Tony Award nominee LaChiusa brings Schnitzler's love stories to life with musical and lyrical styles of each decade, ranging from opera to jazz to disco. Transport Group's production, the first New York City revival ofHello Again, will feature new orchestrations by Drama Desk Award winner Mary-Mitchell Campbell (Company) and will be staged non-traditionally in a raw space in Soho by 2-time Drama Desk Award nominee Jack Cummings III (The Boys in the Band).

...an arresting, fresh, downtown-chic pulse...” “...a truly brave, fully charged ensemble...” “...brilliantly re-orchestrated by Mary-Mitchell Campbell...” “...book yourself a seat, and not only will you get a first-rate musical revival that won’t give you toothache; you might even get a go-go boy on your table in the deal.
