“Such a beautiful show,— Jonathan Sayer
funny and immensely moving,
heart-rending and heart-mending...
Lots of different things
at the same time.”
“YOU MUST see this gorgeous,— D’arcy Carden
“It's sort of unbelievable— Chris Gethard
what he's done!
A very good piece of theater that
makes me believe in comedy.
I am proud of my friend.”
“Michael Cruz Kayne goes after something beyond laughter, guiding us with humor and warmth. His revelation of why we’re actually at the Minetta Lane results in a show that is less guarded, more daring, and a whole lot funnier.”
On the tenth anniversary of a profound loss, comedian Michael Cruz Kayne felt compelled to describe his feelings of grief in 140 characters or less. Much to his surprise, over 200,000 people responded in solidarity from all corners of the globe. Overwhelmed by the response, the “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” writer and host of A Good Cry created Sorry for Your Loss, a sidesplitting, heartrending look at life—and death. This powerfully personal world premiere cuts through the platitudes, directly reaching out to anyone who has ever experienced loss—or will. So... everyone.
