io...wh@t? Word Game

‘Iowa’ cast members partner up to guess key words from the play. The challenge? No lines or songs from the script allowed. Oh, and they've gotta put a cork in it. Let the games begin!

Iowa Trailer

Mom found her soul-mate on Facebook, and he lives in Iowa. So Becca says goodbye to her beloved math teacher, bulimic best friend, neighborhood pony and her mildly deficient teenage life, and she follows her wayward mother to a new, uncharted beginning. But in this fanciful, absurdist, and intoxicating musical play from the imagination of Jenny Schwartz and Todd Almond nothing can prepare them for what they’ll find.

Artist Interview with Jenny Schwartz and Todd Almond

Tim Sanford: And where did [the song "Coastal Erosion"] come from? Jenny Schwartz: The scene with Becca and her dad. He tells her that Indonesia is sinking because of coastal erosion. I wanted to highlight the fact that the world is turning to shit in general, not just for Becca. Todd Almond: We were in Williamstown, and I went to a little cafe and I wrote the song and brought it into rehearsal. Jenny Schwartz: And I wept. Uncontrollably. Because of its beauty.
