Almost, Maine at Boise Little Theater


Harking back to the snow-bundled, quirky '90s TV show Northern Exposure, Almost, Maine shows the myriad intersections of love and heartbreak on a crisp winter night in the small fictional town of Almost, Maine. Penned by playwright and actor John Cariani, Almost, Maine has been hailed by Charles Isherwood of the New York Times as "A comedy comprising almost a dozen two-character vignettes exploring the sudden thunderclap of love and the scorched earth that sometimes follows."

Almost, Maine's four actors portray about 20 characters, including Glory and East in "Her Heart." When Glory chooses East's yard as her Northern Lights viewing spot, she packs an interesting picnic, with the remnants of her broken heart, which her cheating husband broke before his death. Can East, who is a repairman, fix it for her?

Through March 13. $5-$11 adults, Boise Little Theater, 100 E. Fort St., 208-342-5104,
