The Civilians will present Meet the Civilians, September 27, before the final preview of the company's work, This Beautiful City, to play the Kirk Douglas Theatre September 21-October 26, with an official opening of September 28. Written by Steven Cosson and Jim Lewis, with music and lyrics by Michael Friedman, This Beautiful City is directed by Cosson.

Meet the Civilians will start at 6:30pm when Cosson and Friedman will talk about the development of This Beautiful City. Attendees will be treated to premium seats at that evening's 8:00pm performance of the show. Commissioned and developed by The Civilians and New York's Vineyard Theatre (which will present the show in Spring 2009), This Beautiful City details the explosion of America's evangelical Christian movement in Colorado Springs at the base of Pike's Peak.

The cast of This Beautiful City features Emily Ackerman, Marsha Stephanie Blake, Brad Heberlee, Brandon Miller, Stephen Plunkett, and Alison Weller.
