Kate and Jake were married for more than 25 years. When Kate is desperate to get out of a first date, she turns to the one person who can help: her deceased husband. Traipsing through their shared memories with charm and humor, Botanic Garden is a tender story of an imperfect marriage. Starring theater legends and married couple Carmen Roman and James Leaming, this is a Concert Presentation of Todd Logan’s and Lindsay Jones’ new musical adapted from Todd Logan’s play. Logan’s play had its premiere in 2008 in a production directed by the late and great Olympia Dukakis. Now it comes to 16th Street as a musical directed by Ann Filmer.
