  • Seize the day! Adolescent years are always a challenge, and that goes double, actually quadruple, for 16-year-old Kimberly in the hit musical Kimberly Akimbo. She suffers from an extremely rare disease that causes her to age more than four times faster than normal. On top of having to face down mortality way too soon, Kim is dealing with a dad who drinks too much booze; a neurotic, pregnant mom who’s harboring a deep family secret; and a con-artist aunt. But Kimberly finds a friend in a nerdy...

  • The '90s are back — on stage! When David Lindsay-Abaire premiered his hit play Kimberly Akimbo in 2001, boybands were still the talk of every teenage girl, baggy flannels and candy necklaces were in style, and great theatre — or great anything — was "all that and a bag of chips." Now that the '90s are in style again, it's fitting that Lindsay-Abaire's play, set in 1993, is back too, this time as a musical. The musical adaptation retains the original story: a teenage girl with an aging condition...
