The Man From Earth is a thoughtful science fiction drama adapted from the 2007 film written by Jerome Bixby -- one of the most successful and prolific writers of science fiction's golden age. Bixby co-wrote the story that served as the basis for Fantastic Voyage, penned multiple episodes of the original run of Star Trek (including the classic "Mirror, Mirror" episode), and his story "It's a Good Life" was the basis for an episode of The Twilight Zone and was later featured in Twilight Zone: The Movie. Bixby's brilliant swan song, The Man From Earth centers on John Oldman, a history professor who suddenly decides to resign. When his colleagues show up at his home for an impromptu going-away party turned informal inquisition, Oldman is compelled to announce his extraordinary reasons for leaving. And what starts as a friendly gathering eventually builds to a shocking climax in this stage adaptation of a powerful sci-fi story. Learn More

It was a very good original show. The talent was very good and we enjoyed it very much. The OCHA cast was really top notch -- as good as what I have seen in touring companies.

The show runs 2.5 hours and is recommended for children ages 4 and older.

Higher Education made its Bridge 2 Broadway debut in the summer of 2012 (under its working title Guardians), and the workshop culminated with a staged reading of the work-in-progress. This year, Bridge 2 Broadway is proud to announce that Higher Education will be featured as a full production at the Margaret A. Webb Theatre. Higher Education marks the first production from Bridge 2 Broadway to return for a fully realized production. Rather than the staged readings of last year, the 2013 production of Higher Education will feature sets, costumes, lighting, and choreography, along with the return of last year’s live orchestra.
