About this show

Trinity Rep presents Charles Strouse's You Never Know, a new musical with an award-winning pedigree born in Providence. Amanda Dehnert directs, with choreography by Christopher D'Amboise. Music and lyrics by Charles Strouse, with book by Charles Strouse with Rinne Groff. A love letter to the great American musical from the composer of Bye Bye Birdie, Annie, and Applause, Charles Strouse's You Never Know is a multi-layered story within an irresistible blend of romance and suspense. The start of the story is deceptively simple, as we meet a young man who has found a musical that his grandfather wrote but never finished, and decides to bring the show to life. We travel back to that musical's setting - a swanky Miami resort in 1948 with a colorful cast of characters - the womanizing politician, his movie-star wife, and our young songwriter hero. The Thursday, April 21 performance is at 7pm. Additional 2pm matinees select Saturdays and Sundays. Call for details.
