With Love and a Major Organ

The story of a woman with a paper heart, a mother who wanted to spare her the pain of a real one, and a stranger on the subway with so much love to give. A modern-day fable about what it costs to give your heart away, and what happens when you discover you actually have one.
“A show that stands out above the others... just about perfect... rises to a rare level of universal truth, all while making us laugh. A lot.” —NewCity Stage (Chicago)
“Funny, insightful, and ends up saying much more about the heart and human interaction than simply being a quirky, poetically symbolic love story . . . What then could be more important than seeing a play like “With Love and a Major Organ,” with its insistence that one’s heart, in real time, is central to everything.” —The Daily Breeze (Los Angeles)
