Had to park about 4 blocks away, not bad for a Saturday night.

Description

Fly By Night

Conceived by Kim Rosenstock

By Will Connolly, Michael Mitnick & Kim Rosenstock

Guided by a star-crossed prophecy, two entrancing sisters and a hapless sandwich maker discover a well of courage and a wealth of romance during New York’s knockout blackout of 1965. In a charming, darkly comic rock musical the promise of change begets anxiety and hope, delight and devastation. But as this runaway hit of our New Works Festival proves, it sometimes takes a blackout to see the light.

Kim Rosenstock (Co-Author) has written several plays including Tigers Be Still, receiving its West Coast premiere at SF Playhouse through July 30th. The world premiere of Tigers Be Still at Roundabout Underground was voted one of the top ten plays of 2010 by The NY Times, and was nominated for an Outer Critics Circle Award. She is currently working on commissions for Ars Nova (where she is the 2011 Playwright-in-Residence), Roundabout Theatre Company, and Dallas Theater Center.
