By PigPen Theatre Co.
Co-directed by Stuart Carden and PigPen Theatre Co.
“This is a story of time and tides and quests, the sort of fable on which mythologies and religions are founded,” says Ben Brantley of The New York Times. Now, after delighting audiences in New York, Chicago, and Boston, The Old Man and The Old Moon makes its West Coast premiere. The Old Man tends to The Old Moon, refilling the light that spills out every night. When his wife unexpectedly leaves home, The Old Man abandons his post and plunges the world into darkness. His eventful journey across land, air, and sea to find her reminds them—and us—of the unwavering power of love. Discover why BroadwayWorld dubbed the production “a glorious fusion of music and theatrics,” and TheaterMania called it “extraordinarily imaginative—a rare example of true theatre magic!”
