WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Benny & Joon is a world premiere musical based on the offbeat 1990s romcom of the same title. As Joon's sole caretaker, auto mechanic Benny makes sure his eccentric sister lives a comfortable, safe, and predictable life. But when Sam shows up, his off-kilter take on the world — full of classic films, Buster Keaton, and an oddball approach to domestic life — turns everything upside down. With unforgettable characters and a beguiling and tuneful score, Benny & Joon explores what happens when we step out of our comfort zones and take a leap toward love.
