The Charing Cross theatre is your venue for the latest, greatest musical romcom to hit theatreland, a highly unusual story based on a true-life tale that rocked the sleepy Key West community over in Florida during the first third of the twentieth century. It's a story of obsession, of never giving up, of chasing your dreams, and you're going to love every last remarkable, nutty minute of it.
Do you believe in undying love? Have you experienced it yourself? It Happened in Key West is the true story of the eccentric x-ray technician, Carl Von Cosel, who spent most of his early life daydreaming about a very special girl, a unique girl, the girl of his dreams. When he finally meets the girl he's been desperately seeking for all those long, lonely years, he has the dreadful task of confirming she has TB, the dreaded tuberculosis, and also finds out that she's already married. What can a man do?
This particular man decided that the only way ahead was to win her over, despite her illness and her husband, and bring about a miracle to save her from death. The musical details his increasingly desperate and unorthodox attempts to save her life, whatever the cost, and showcases the intense, fire-bright, undying love he feels when she finally succumbs to the disease. But it is really 'undying love', or is it some kind of sick obsession? Is it pure love or pure weirdness that drives him to dig her up and live with her corpse for seven long, happy years?
Back in the 1930s the story caused havoc, dividing the Key West community. Some people were intrigued, others were disgusted. Some were sympathetic, others were shocked to the core. This is the story of the scientist who was so hopelessly, totally inseparable from the woman of his dreams that he moved mountains to try to save her. The result is funny, surprising, and heartwarming.
The creative team consists of Jill Santoriello, Jason Huza, Brendan Huza, Robert Felstein, Rashad V. Chambers, Jeremiah James, Marylou Rothfuss, Lisa Zinni, Jamie Roderick and Janine Lee Papio. And you're looking at a strictly limited run, so grab tickets as soon as you can to secure your seats.
