Michael John LaChiusa’s Hello Again will premiere nationally in theatres November 8. The film, based on the 1994 Off-Broadway musical, stars Audra McDonald, Martha Plimpton, Cheyenne Jackson, T.R. Knight, Rumer Willis, Jenna Ushkowitz, Nolan Gerard Funk, Sam Underwood, Tyler Blackburn, and Al Calderon.
Hello Again has words and music by LaChiusa, and is suggested by Arthur Schnitzler's Vienna-set play La Ronde, which shows the connections made between ten related couples. LaChiusa’s take also follows a series of ten love affairs and flings, but bounces through various eras in New York City history.
