We have survived tech


I am falling in love with my show all over again.

Seriously.

The technical rehearsals this past weekend were astonishingly smooth, thanks in no part to my multi-talented and on the ball Lighting & Set designer and crew. Thank you so much!

And the show is starting to look sooooo sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!

So get your tickets...Only five shows and only 60 seats (it's a small house).

Are you ready for that great atomic power? On July 16, 1945, the Trinity test in New Mexico awakens the Greek God Kronos (otherwise known as Saturn). After killing his father and devouring his own children, he was banished to the underworld by his son Zeus and is just waiting for the end of the world which will set him free. The dawning of the atomic age means the time draws nigh. Using text, movement and music, this ensemble-based play weaves together several stories from 1945 to now, showing Oppenheimer and other members of The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists as they try to warn the military and others about the impending cold war and the arms race. It examines the "nuclear" family of the 1950s, the fear of the 1980s, and how millions grew up under the shadow of a mushroom cloud. The clock is ticking for us all. Kronos is waiting, certain of mankind's destruction. What are you waiting for?
