Sixteen-year-old Olivia hasn’t seen her mother Beatriz in years, but—surprise!—mom just showed up in the middle of the night, with a pickup truck, the promise of the open road… and an immigration hearing looming at journey’s end.

PROGRAMMING NOTES

This licensed version is based on the 2018 Off-Broadway Production at The Public Theatre in NYC.

This show is orchestrated to be piano conducted from the keyboard by the Music Director. This is the only keyboard in the orchestration and there are approximately 40 unique patches and sounds in this book.

The Piano/Conductor Book which is labelled as Keyboard 1 on the order form below is the primary piano book and in additional to the acoustic piano patches, you will find various synth elements such as pads and textures, acoustic/steel string guitar, harpsichord, wurlitzer, organ, and even a mellotron violin patch.

This is not a technically challenging part to play but it does take someone who can play the part and navigate the programming while leading the band. There are lots of groove sections in this part and there are moments where the notation is just chords and rhythmic slashes so each note is not always written out in full.

SHOW DESCRIPTION

When a whip-smart, deeply imaginative teenager agrees to take a road trip with her free-spirited Latina mother, neither can imagine where it will take them. Chance encounters with a medley of characters along the way brings them closer to understanding what sets them apart—and what connects them forever. At the heart of the story is a mother-daughter relationship complicated and threatened by immigration policies. Miss You Like Hell reminds us that musicals have the power to explore the exposed territory where political becomes personal. Featuring compelling original songs that are every bit as diverse and eclectic as America, Miss You Like Hell is a new musical that exudes the joy, love and frustration of being a family in a changing country.
