Set in present-day Los Angeles, Divorce! The Musical takes us on Penny and Rich's journey, as their fairy-tale marriage unravels. Denial, deception, and raw outrage collide with greedy lawyers, dramatically inclined family members, mountains of paperwork and out-to-lunch therapists. From "Till Death Do Us Part" to "I'm Living In My Parents' Basement And My Friends Forgot My Name" to the realization that each spouse is only left with "Half," Divorce! The Musical reminds us that laughing in the face of tragedy can sometimes be the best way to move on.
