Boy meets girl. Boy uses wheelchair, girl uses scooter. Boy and girl use text-to-speech technology to connect to each other and the world around them. Love is holding them together even when the people in their lives want to pull them apart. It’s a romantic coming-of-age story that hasn’t been seen before. All of Me is a hilarious and candid portrayal of disability and class in present-day America.
The production will feature scenic design by Brian Prather (BSC’s Eleanor), costume design by Sarah LeFeber (BSC debut), lighting design by Miriam Crowe (Clybourne Park on Broadway), and sound design by Matt Otto (A Patron of the Arts Off-Broadway). Playwright Laura Winters won the Burman New Play Award for this work under its former title, Just the Melody. She was also a Burman semi-finalist for her earlier work, Gonzo.

Cohen and directed by BSC Founder and Artistic Director Julianne Boyd.
At the Sydelle and Lee Blatt Performing Arts Center, a revival of Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot (August 19-September 4), directed by Joe Calarco (BSC: Sister Sorry; A Doll’s House, Part 2; Breaking the Code), will cap off the 2022 St. Germain Stage season.
