The Astronaut's Tale
Launching January 28-31, 2016
Directed by Nancy Rhodes and Conducted by Nicholas DeMaison
At BAM Fisher (Fishman Space)
321 Ashland Place
Brooklyn, NY 11217
Breathtaking images of the galaxies and outer space ignite a modern tale of a young man'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.
