It’s 2075. A metropolis in a dystopian world where humans spend most of their time in survival pods taking shelter from an overheated planet. Plugged in to virtual realities, they rarely venture out in person except for organized mass entertainment events held under a shimmering festival dome. But Lucie, a misfit, has dreams of persuading flowers to grow in the scorched ground outside her pod. When Oscar catches a glimpse of her gardening on surveillance footage, he’s convinced she is the incarnation of Anjelín, a digital pop star he stans in virtual reality, and sets out to meet her. Meanwhile preparations are underway for Anjelín’s first holographic concert in the dome, but there are “glitches” in the digital star’s programming as she seems to manifest her own will and emotions. Oscar introduces a reluctant Lucie to the festival scene where she comes face to face with the virtual star who, uncannily, looks exactly like her. And then, Anjelín herself begins to have ideas about her purpose in the world, her connection to Lucie, and the dream of a real-life garden of starflowers.

The new musical Garden of Starflowers has book, music and lyrics by Masi Asare (Monsoon Wedding) and was commissioned by the Stacey Mindich Go Write A Musical Lilly Award. This is the first time that material from the show is being presented publicly.

THE WORLD IS ENDING

AND YOU’RE INVITED TO THE LAST SHITSHOW EVER.

IT’S AN INDIE-POP RAGER CELEBRATING THE DELIGHTS AND DECEPTIONS OF EXISTING

An Incomplete List of All The Things I’m Going To Miss When The World is No Longer: is a new musical with book, music and lyrics by Dante Green, with additional music and lyrics by Marlee Gordon and Lyell Hintz. Following a global announcement of the date and time Earth will be terminated, a community decides the only reasonable thing to do is to gather together. The new musical invites you into a glance at the last shit show ever -- through a retrospective of cherished and tragic memories -- to celebrate and mourn the delights and deceptions of the human experience.

The show has been developed with the Philadelphia Fringe Festival, The University of the Arts, The Wilma Theater, and Ars Nova.
