The Overcoat: a musical for non musical people by Kira Obolensky
December 4 and 5, 2017 at 7 p.m.

In this musical re-imagining of Gogol’s short story “The Overcoat,” poor beleaguered Charlie Shoe needs a new coat to keep Winter away—she’s there, on the bridge, on the stair, waiting for his body and soul. Funny and tragic, this short musical wonders if empathy and love are really enough to save us from the clutches of coldness.
