The Alley Theatre's world-premiere production of Lover, Beloved: An Evening With Carson McCullers begins performances tonight under the direction of Jackson Gay.

Grammy-nominated song writer Suzanne Vega stars in the production that she cowrote with Tony and Grammy winner Duncan Sheik (Spring Awakening). A play with music, Lover, Beloved pays homage to renowned Southern writer Carson McCullers (The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter and The Member of the Wedding) capturing McCullers' instinctively rebellious nature and forward-thinking philosophies on race, gender, and love.
