In the Chicago premiere of Michael John LaChiusa’s Little Fish, thirty-something writer Charlotte decides to give up smoking and tries to compensate with swimming and jogging – but to no avail. With the help of her friends Kathy and Marco, she embarks on a modern-day odyssey to face the eclectic demons of her past. Loosely based on Deborah Eisenberg’s short stories Days and Flotsam, Little Fish’s score is infused with Latin, jazz, rock, and what’s been described as "pure urban noise within Charlotte's mind."
