“…as staged by Tyler Thomas, with spare yet essential choreography by Nora Thompson, part of this musical’s triumph is its sensitivity and grace…”
– The New York Times
If Sand Were Stone follows a remarkable poet as she and her family grapple with her early-onset Alzheimer’s Disease at the peak of her career. As their world unsteadies and shifts, they must learn to hold fast to love against all odds. Inspired by a true story and by extensive first-hand research with Alzheimer’s patients and their families, If Sand Were Stone is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and, most importantly, to fierce love.
