Burning in the Night

Description: Semi-autobiographical, this memory play with music is the stage adaptation of a memoir by playwright Dale Wasserman’s ("Man of La Mancha," "One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest") journey from runaway teen to rail-riding hobo to globe-trotting writer for television, stage and screen. Throughout his fascinating life, he pursued the impossible dream of absolute freedom; only to discover it’s a delusion, fraught with debilitating limitations.
