Almost, Maine will bring magic to Marin Summer Theater's 2013 season.  A play by John Cariani, Almost, Maine has been warming hearts and charming audiences since it was first produced at the Portland Stage Company in 2004.  Since then, Almost, Maine has traveled to Broadway, all over the United States and around the world.  MST will present Almost, Maine on July 18, 19, 20 and 21.

On a cold, clear, moonless night in the middle of winter, all is not quite what it seems in the remote, mythical town of Almost, Maine. As the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, Almost's residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and often hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night's dream.
