Musical Comedy "Spaced Out"

A fame-seeking former reality TV contestant and a socially deficient cameraman are sent to uncover the secrets of the Beacon, an alien-worshipping cult led by a madman with three wives who believes the aliens are returning to save him and his followers. But we learn something they don't know: our planet lies on the brink of world domination by a surprisingly snarky alien race.

In an age when social network updates and a never-ending slew of viral crap-o-tainment have replaced real, face-to-face human interaction we ask: Has the time come for our surrender?

The co-creators of Spaced Out! are thrilled to announce that composer/lyricist Kurt Crowley has been hand picked as assistant conductor for the Broadway musical "Bring it On."

This new musical was created by numerous Tony Award-winning artists: The music is by Tom Kitt ("Next to Normal") and Lin-Manuel Miranda ("In the Heights"), with lyrics by Mr. Miranda and Amanda Green and a book by Jeff Whitty ("Avenue Q").  Andy Blankenbuehler, who won a Tony for choreography for "In the Heights," is the director and choreographer.  Read the full text as announced today in the NY Times Art Beat.

Since it's Kurt's life dream to be working on Broadway the fall 2012 staged reading of Spaced Out! will be postponed until 2013 so Kurt can focus on enjoying working with all these Tony winners!
