From the Pulitzer Prize-winning co-creator of In the Heights comes a new musical as big as America and as intimate as love between a mother and her daughter. Beatriz arrives in Philadelphia to convince her estranged 16 year-old daughter Olivia to join her on a road trip to California. Along the way, they encounter a mosaic of characters as diverse and weird as America itself, but the hard truth of Beatriz’s undocumented status and pending deportation to Mexico threatens to build a wall between them. With sharp comedy and a winning acoustic score by folk-rock star Erin McKeown, Miss You Like Hell is an American story for our time.

Learn more about Miss You Like Home, our special day of civic engagement on February 1. This all-day open house is filled with free events centered on what it means to be at home in America today. Through story circles, art workshops, panels and discussions, as well as theatre and dance performances featuring amazing local Latinx artists, we'll celebrate and amplify the diverse perspectives and unique stories of home in our community. We'll finish the day with a StorySlam! where you can tell us a 3-5 minute story about "home", whatever that means to you. Get started by recording your story at the bottom of this page!
