"Thought-provoking, soul-searching exploration of two mediums fused together as one"
- DC METRO THEATRE ARTS
A picture is worth 1,000 words — what about a song? Can a picture inspire a song or fifteen? In 35mm, each photo creates an unique song, moments frozen in time; a glimmer of a life unfolding, a glimpse of something happening. A stunning new multimedia musical which explores a ground breaking new concept in musical theatre... This intricately woven collection of stories told through song re-imagines what the modern American musical can be.
