AN “EXQUISITE PORTRAIT OF YOUNG LOVE IN THE HEAT OF WAR”
AT CHERRY LANE THEATRE
About the Show
Elodie is 17. She’s French. She finds reflective surfaces everywhere to test out new looks. Otto is 16. He’s a German soldier. He tries not to look at himself in the mirror.
Caught in the middle of a war, these two teenagers meet secretly for one night together as the world outside tears apart. Rita Kalnejais’ kaleidoscopic play asks us to consider the limits of empathy in a divided world. It seeks out tenderness amidst tragedy – hope in the hopeless.
Starring Tony-Award Nominee Austin Pendleton (The Minutes, Choir Boy), Tony-Award Winner Angelina Fiordellisi, Francesca Carpanini (All My Sons), and Uly Schlesinger (HBO Max’s “Generation”), This Beautiful Future places us at the nexus of two generations falling in love – one reflecting on old memories, and the other aspiring to make new ones.
