Cygnet is thrilled to revisit one of its favorite musicals. Desirée Armfeldt has always captured the hearts of men. When both of her lovers-and their wives-show up for a weekend in the country, a tangled web of love and desire lead to humorous and heartbreaking revelations. Sophisticated, literate and stylish, but also disarmingly warm, funny, charming and very human. Featuring the hit song “Send in the Clowns.”

“Sumptuous and triumphant production” – San Diego Union-Tribune

The Wind and the Breeze

By Nathan Alan Davis
Directed by Rob Lutfy

May 16 - Jun 10, 2018
Low-Priced Previews May 16 - May 19, 2018

World Premiere
Sam, the legendary, undisputed, greatest emcee in Rockford, IL, plans to rest on his laurels all winter and, if possible, stake out an early spot to watch the Independence Day fireworks -but his closest mentees and their outsized dreams challenge him to a battle he can’t win. The Wind and the Breeze explores the politics of place, the unspoken expectations of friendship and what happens when we choose to stand our ground on shifting sands.

“Because ultimately what makes it soar is Davis’ uniquely lyrical script, and its thematic veracity and original authorial voice floats us past fleeting new-play issues.” – LA Times

“I wish that other playwrights…could be as skillful as Nathan Alan Davis.” – DC Theatre Scene
