Miss You Like Hell

Olney Theatre Center
2001 Olney-Sandy Spring Rd. Olney

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning co-creator of In the Heights comes a new musical as big as America and as intimate as love between a mother and her daughter. Beatriz arrives in Philadelphia to convince her estranged 16 year-old daughter Olivia to join her on a road trip to California. Along the way, they encounter a mosaic of characters as diverse and weird as America itself, but the hard truth of Beatriz's undocumented status and pending deportation to Mexico threatens to build a wall between them. With sharp comedy and a winning acoustic score by folk-rock star Erin McKeown, Miss You Like Hell is an American story for our time. Age Guidance: If this were a film it would be rated R.

Washington Post - Somewhat Recommended

"...If it’s the journey, not the destination, that matters most, then “Miss You Like Hell” amounts to a rough ride. Although the politically poignant road-trip musical, currently parked at the Olney Theatre Center, concludes with heart-rending catharsis, there are more than a few bumps along the way."

"...“Miss You Like Hell” is a poignant story of a mother and daughter trying to hold on in a world that is full of obstacles. All of us are affected by its message."

"...Morales portrays Olivia's angst and conflicted feelings about her mother very believably. Her voice soars in "Sundays" and the titular song, displaying both power and vulnerability. She also depicts Olivia's anxiety in songs like "Bibliography," her panicked recitation of all of the books she's read contrasting with the full voice she brings to the "Good Night, Moon" line that reminds her of her mother. It's clear that Olivia was traumatized when her mother left her behind, so she tries to lose herself in books, a path that Beatriz, who read to her when she was younger, set her on."
