Little Did I Know

The story of a group of friends – recent college graduates – who bring a broken-down summer theatre back to life in 1976. The summer will be different from anything they expected, and what they experience will resonate throughout their lives. At turns funny, romantic, stirring, and poignant, this is an unforgettable coming-of-age story.


Made up of nine episodes, approximately thirty minutes each, the drama includes eighteen original songs backed by a full band and sung by a stellar group of young vocalists. Spearheaded by a creative dream team that includes Oscar and Golden Globe winner Dean Pitchford (Fame, Footloose), three-time Tony Winner Doug Besterman (The Producers, Thoroughly Modern Millie), and Tony and Pulitzer winner Mitchell Maxwell

(Stomp!, Damn Yankees).
