Why See 110 In The Shade?

In the middle of a heat wave in 1930's Texas, when everyone is longing for rain, or a breeze, Lizzie Curry (McDonald) is on the verge of becoming a hopeless old maid. Her wit, intelligence and skills as a homemaker can't make up for the fact that she can't find true love. Even the town sheriff, for whom she harbors a secret yen, won't take a chance. However, when a charismatic rainmaker named Starbuck (Kazee) enters the town and her family's life, Lizzie's world is turned upside down.

Four-time Tony® Award winner Audra McDonald returns to the Broadway stage having most recently won a Tony® for her performance in the 2004 Broadway revival of A Raisin in the Sun. Steve Kazee returns to the Broadway stage after starring as Sir Lancelot in Monty Python's Spamalot. Lonny Price returns to Roundabout Theatre Company having recently directed the 2003 Broadway revival of "Master Harold"...and the boys starring Danny Glover.
