About the Event
Be in the audience for this historic moment when we introduce Richmond audiences to JC Gonzalez's new pop/rock opera WARM.
Join us for this incredible new musical about three teenage runaways searching for home and finding it in each other on the streets of Los Angeles. Gonzalez’s high octane score includes one hit song after another that’s sure to grab your heart and soul and get you on your feet cheering.
