This Space Between Us is a new comedy about trying to change the world while admitting that the house could use a little change, too. Nobody understands why Jamie wants to leave his cushy law firm to work for a non-profit organization. Her boyfriend is worried, her best friend is confused, and her conservative Cuban-American family is sure they know what’s best. As Jamie announces his intention to serve those less fortunate, a shocking afternoon at the racetrack causes unexpected and irreversible consequences for them all. This intergenerational comedy follows a raucous attempt to achieve something more without leaving the people you love behind.
Tickets, starting at $60, are on sale now online at the Theater Row Box Office. Premium seats are also available for $85.
