      The Willard Suitcases - A World-Premiere Musical

      "We all have baggage - what's yours?"
      In 1995, a handful of forgotten suitcases were discovered in the recently closed Willard Psychiatric Center in upstate New York, untouched since their owners checked in many years before. Inspired by the photographs of these bags taken by Jon Crispin, The Willard Suitcases is a world-premiere musical that imagines the lives that packed these bags, some funny, some strange, some tragic, and all very, very human.

      Written by renowned composer/lyricist Julianne Wick Davis, The Willard Suitcases makes its debut on the Blackfriars Stage. Ethan McSweeny directs this premiere featuring the Olivier, Drama Desk, and Helen Hayes award-nominated Nancy Anderson (West End’s Kiss Me Kate, Broadway’s Sunset Boulevard).

      The Willard Suitcases runs in repertory with ASC's Roman Trio (Julius Caesar, Antony and Cleopatra, and Caesar and Cleopatra).
