From creation myths to the Big Bang to alien life forms, a constellation of actors will bring to life the story of the Cosmos in the words of the great poets, astronomers, comics, mythologists, musicians, philosophers, scientists, cosmological physicists, astronauts, and mystics. Accompanied by rousing renditions of classical and contemporary music, we will contemplate our galaxy with such visionaries as David Bowie, Elton John, Monty Python, Copernicus, Galileo, Einstein, Carl Sagan, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Stephen Hawking, and Diane Ackerman. Maestro Anthony Parnther conducts musical artists Inna Faliks, Starr Parodi, Amy Keys, Red Mandala, Lizzie Ball, Pedro Segundo, Page Hamilton, Wayne Bergeron, and many more. Original music by Jonathan Sacks and Starr Parodi.
