Departures has published a preview of the upcoming collaboration between Cleveland Play House and The Cleveland Orchestra: the world premiere of The Good Peaches by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Quiara Alegría Hudes:

While Lin-Manuel Miranda has gone on to stratospheric levels of fame since his first Broadway musical, “In the Heights,” hit the stage in 2008, playwright Quiara Alegría Hudes—who wrote that musical’s book—has enjoyed a quieter but no less lauded career. (Four years ago, she won the Pulitzer for her play “Water By the Spoonful.”) But April seems to be Hudes’s month. She’ll start by premiering a new play, “The Good Peaches,” about a young girl’s fantastical adventure, as a collaboration between the Cleveland Playhouse and the Cleveland Orchestra; it’ll be performed onstage with the orchestra, with a score including familiar works by composers Benjamin Britten and John Adams.
