The longest-running musical in history comes to the Mission with its timeless tale of love found, love lost, and love renewed. Two neighboring fathers trick their children into falling in love by forbidding them to do so. They build a wall between their houses, fabricate a feud, and stage a grand abduction, all so the Boy can rescue his love. But when he does, they both find out that sometimes love is not exactly what you dream of.
This theatrically enchanting musical love letter will delight audiences with its heartfelt message and its iconic score that includes songs like Never Say No and Soon It’s Gonna Rain. Join us and “try to remember... the fire of September that made us mellow.”
