Nathan Gregorski's new play, which was named a Best of the New York Fringe Festival in 2013, arrives in L.A. for its West Coast premiere. Orbiting Astral Bodies is a cosmic and comic fantasy that follows the intersecting paths of four young adults whose lives are brought together -- and pulled apart -- in various ways when the moon (played by Michelle Holmes) decides to say sayonara to Earth in search of something better. The show appears at The MET as a co-production of the award-winning DOMA Theatre Company. Learn More

The show was done in a very amateurish fashion. At times the singers were off key when attempting to harmonize and it was painful to listen to. With the exception of “Woman #1” the acting was simply awful. The choreography, which is supposedly the director’s specialty was just plain bad. The performers were stiff and when they did move there was no real purpose behind their movement. My only thought was….”So this is what happens to performers and directors when they don’t make it to Broadway.” The director set the show off to a bad start by coming up on stage and making some half-assesed unprofessional speech. It was a real turn-off and as far as I’m concerned, set the tone for the whole show. I lost two hours of my life and I want them back.
Quotes & Highlights
- "The stars of the show were all wonderfully talented ... While they all sang with energy and professionalism, I especially liked AnnaLisa [Erickson,] whose performance reminded me somewhat of Bette Midler." --LA Splash
- A small cast... and a small but dynamic band, led by Director and DOMA Theatre Company cofounder Marco Gomez, have done an excellent job of presenting Brown’s captivating music." --Examiner
