About Far From Heaven - Off Broadway

Show Info


In Far From Heaven, Cathy Whitaker seems to be the picture-perfect wife and mother in 1957 suburban Connecticut. But roiling beneath the surface, secret longings and forbidden desires cause her world to unravel, with incendiary consequences. With a lush score that is both jazz-inflected and hauntingly lyrical, Far From Heaven is a powerful story of romance, betrayal, and intolerance, as a woman grapples with her identity in a society on the verge of upheaval.

"Kelli O'Hara is one of the best performers in musicals today. The sense of hope that pulses in her voice breaks your heart."
--Ben Brantley, NY Times

"Heaven-sent. A gorgeously lush and evocative score. Scott Frankel and Michael Korie easily top their Tony-nominated work from Grey Gardens. Their songs are given the deluxe treatment from Playwrights Horizons."
--Elisabeth Vincentelli, NY Post

"Both Steven Pasquale and Isaiah Johnson have Broadway-big talents that are thrilling to watch."
-- Adam Markovitz, Entertainment Weekly

"Beautifully rendered. Richard Greenberg’s book accurately depicts the artificial tenor of the times. Michael Greif and his design team have created a fluid, visually compelling production, enhanced by Catherine Zuber's gorgeous costumes."
--Jennifer Farrar, AP

"A haunting, uncommonly serious contemporary musical. The ravishingly beautiful score evokes Leonard Bernstein."
--David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter

"A rare commodity: a rich, operatic, tightly integrated post-Sondheim score. There hasn’t been a score like this since The Light in the Piazza."
--Matt Windman, AMNY
