CHAGRIN by Michael Ross Albert

Outside Inside in partnership with HUBO Productions presents the world premiere production of CHAGRIN by Michael Ross Albert. Directed by Adam Levi, featuring Marco Agnolucci, Heath Carr, Suzy Kimball, and Melissa Rosenberger. Associate Producer/Assistant Director: Kaitlyn Samuel

Chagrin takes place outside of a small town hospital, where four estranged friends are unexpectedly reunited. Fifteen years ago, these child geniuses rose to mega-stardom on a popular TV game show. Now, brought together by a tragic accident, they must grapple with their collective past in the place where it all began – Chagrin Falls.

Chagrin performs at The First Floor Theater at the historic LaMaMa (74A East 4th Street between 2nd Avenue and Bowery). For performance schedule and to purchase tickets, visit or call 866.468.7619.
