» The Playhouse opens a new season with playwright Deborah Zoe Laufer’s contemporary comedy. Sam, a one-hit songwriter, has been married to Rose, his original muse, for 25 years. His obsessive search for a new hit has dimmed their romantic spark. On an anniversary cruise, he jumps overboard, lured by a song coming from the sea. A Siren from Greek mythology reminds Sam why Rose is the love of his life. Amy Lane directs Ablan Roblin, Judy Radcliff, Regina Palmer and Noah Diaz.
