"An awesomely powerful musical that will thrill you to the bones." - CBS
Determined to find his place in the world, 20-something Griffin leaves his job and his New York City apartment to volunteer for a charity in Africa. But when his altruistic aspirations collide with the real world, his life is changed in unexpected and profound ways. Inspired by a true story, this rousing new musical infuses a world pop score with African beats in an electrifying journey about discovering whether changing the world is even possible.
INVISIBLE THREAD runs approximately 2 hours and 5 minutes including one 15 minute intermission.
The performance begins promptly and there is absolutely NO late seating.
