Breathtaking images of the galaxies and outer space ignite a modern tale of a young boy’s fascination
with the cosmos and his dream of flying to Mars. His adventure is guided by a mysterious
stranger who challenges his views on creation and fuels his desire to become an astronaut.
Romance and a compelling drive to succeed catapult his blast off into space, transforming his life.
Stunning projections, an exciting percussive score, and gorgeous vocal music give us a luminous
glimpse of a multi-dimensional universe and the majesty of outer space.
Join us for a soul-stirring, musical experience!
Featuring engaging post-performance talkbacks with the cast and
guest astronomers from the Columbia Astronomy Public Outreach!
