It is a truism that life often makes more sense in the rearview mirror; what feels like aimless wandering in the moment often seems like a clearly marked road in retrospect. In "The Road to Where," coming Friday to Geva's Fielding Nextstage, writer and actress Cass Morgan takes a look at her own circuitous history. Telling stories of growing up in a Florida trailer park, childhood memories in Rochester, and a desire to reconcile with her parents, this Broadway veteran's script is brought to life in story and song. Cass is joined onstage by Megan Loomis, an Eastman grad violinist and well-toured performer from Rochester; Ben Meixwell, a collaborative pianist with extensive and varied performance credentials; and Eli Zoller, who has recently performed on Broadway as a professional musician and has credentials in Off-Broadway music direction.
"The Road to Where" is making its world debut this weekend at Geva Theatre, 75 Woodbury Boulevard, with performances at 7 p.m. on Thursday and Friday; 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Saturday; and 3 p.m. on Sunday. Shows run through May 10. $32-$35. gevatheatre.org.
