In Dreams is a new musical featuring the songs of Roy Orbison. With a book by David West Read (Schitt’s Creek, & Juliet), and direction by Luke Sheppard (& Juliet, In The Heights), In Dreams tells a funny and poignant story of a country-rock singer who invites her old bandmates to join her for “the party of a lifetime” in a family-run Mexican restaurant in New Mexico, while keeping her true motivations a secret. In Dreams takes you on a joyous, uplifting and moving journey – a lyrical and comedic exploration of the universal longing for love and connection.
In Dreams features iconic Roy Orbison songs including “Crying,” “I Drove All Night,” “Pretty Woman,” “You Got It,” and “Handle Me With Care.”
