Popcorn Falls, written by James Hindman and directed by Christian Borle, in his New York directorial debut, will play its final performance on November 25. The production will have played 28 previews and 56 performances.

Popcorn Falls features Adam Heller (It Shoulda Been You) and Tom Souhrada (Desperate Measures) performing over 20 roles in under 90 minutes. The creative team includes scenic design by Timothy Mackabee, lighting design by Jeff Croiter, costume design by Joseph La Corte, and original music composed by Jeffrey Lodin.

The play is described as follows: "Welcome to Popcorn Falls, a small American town, whose only claim to fame — their namesake waterfall — has dried up. Now bankrupt, their last chance is a large grant that can only be used if the town produces a play in a week. One big problem: ain't no playhouse. Another problem? Ain't no play. Led by the mayor and the local handyman, the enterprising townsfolk try to rise to the challenge and prove that art can change the world."
