New York City
Set in 1957 suburban Connecticut, Cathy Whitaker (Summer Naomi Smart) seems to be the picture-perfect wife to popular and handsome executive Frank (Brandon Springman) and a doting mother. But boiling beneath the surface, secret longings, forbidden desires and a new friendship with her gardener (Evan Tyrone Martin) cause her world to unravel, with incendiary consequences. Far From Heaven is a powerful story of romance, betrayal and intolerance, as a woman grapples with her identity in a society on the verge of upheaval. Far From Heaven, based on the Focus Features/Vulcan Productions motion picture written and directed by Todd Haynes (Carol and I’m Not There) features a lush score from Tony Award-nominated songwriters Frankel and Korie (Grey Gardens and Finding Neverland) and a book by Tony Award-winner Greenberg (Take Me Out and Three Days of Rain) that is both jazz-inflected and hauntingly lyrical.
