As the youthful carousing continues, Birdlace makes an unexpected connection with a mild-mannered yet idealistic waitress who challenges his worldview. Music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who nabbed an Academy Award for writing the lyrics to “City of Stars” in La La Land, propel the play’s Vermont premiere, staged by the Stowe Theatre Guild. at Stowe Town Hall Theatre in Stowe.
