|The Last Cloud
| Open: 06/20/07 Close: 07/01/07 - Roy Arias Theaters
Taking place over the course of a year, The Last Cloud follows five friends as they navigate life after college, in the awkward phase before they have the skills to "be" anything. Things go awry when Laura's younger brother moves in for the summer, showing everyone that there is more to life than office politics. Set against the metaphor of a Rubik's Cube, The Last Cloud is a coming of age story of how friends can get so intertwined that they lose their individuality.
With an amazing ensemble cast, The Last Cloud promises to be a rock-and-roll thrill ride for a generation that is just now considering growing up. Toss in a goulash of art, politics, and blatant 80's nostalgia and you have what reviewer Robert McDowell called, "The most engaging night of theatre I've experience in a long time. A true must-see!"
