January 20th thru January 23rd
The Saybrook Stage Company is very excited to return to the Kate with their first large-scale production since the start of the pandemic. Heaven Can Wait is a lighthearted comedy about a young boxing champion, Joe Pendleton who is accidentally sent to heaven before his time due to the mistake of an overeager angel. When Joe is sent back to earth to live out his remaining 60 years, he finds out that his body no longer exists! The hilarity and laughter abounds as heavenly messengers, Jordan and 7013 try to find Joe a new body - or two!
Heaven Can Wait was originally written at the start of WWII, when millions of Americans were apprehensive about what was to come. This play tuned into the spirit of the times with a message of hope for a future filled with opportunities. As we long for a return to normalcy after the pandemic, this feel good story will inspire you to always believe in the future and the triumph of love over time.
