“MUD BLUE SKY” TAKES FLIGHT @ CENTERSTAGE

MUD BLUE SKY
By Marisa Wegrzyn
Directed by Susanna Gellert

WHEN:  March 6- April 14
WHERE:
  Centerstage, 700 North Calvert Street, Baltimore

Spring has sprung and so has a season of new plays at CENTERSTAGE. Mud Blue Sky, our touching look into the lives of flight attendants has taken off! Both critics and audience members are raving about this hilarious new production.

Work, motherhood, missed connections and prom night form the backdrop for Marisa Wegrzyn’s tender, funny new play. In a nondescript hotel room near O’Hare Airport, three flight attendants and an unlikely fourth companion poise on the brink of looking back and moving ahead.

Approximate running time is one hour and thirty minutes, without an intermission. Mud Blue Sky contains strong language, sexually suggestive images and use of illegal substances. It is not appropriate for those under the age of 15.
