Out of This World

Directed by Sarah Lodick

May 8 to May 24, 2015

The 5th production of the 2015 Season

Music and Lyrics by: Cole Porter
Original Book by: Dwight Taylor and Reginald Lawrence
Revised Book by: Greg MacKellan
Based on: the ancient Greek comedy Amphitryon by Plautus

Flirtations and trickery, midnight trysts and celestial parties – it’s a saucy farce about Roman Gods and Hollywood movie types on the prowl in 1950s Athens! The gods Jupiter and Mercury are in search of some entertainment away from Mount Olympus and focus their attention on a young bride, Helen and her husband, Art. While Jupiter is busy chasing Helen, the goddess Juno (Jupiter’s wife) decides to play some games of her own. Throw into the mix: Isadora St. John, a syndicated gossip columnist who is out hunting for her next biggest scoop, and Chloe, a young American girl living in Athens for the summer providing a love interest for Mercury…and the result? You’ll have to join us to find out! This show contains mature themes.

Out of This World contains the classical music and lyrics of Cole Porter, but with an updated twist by the Bay Area’s own Greg MacKellan. This musical comedy features a wonderful score packed with delightful songs such as “I Jupiter, I Rex,” “Where, Oh, Where?,” “I Sleep Easier Now,” and “From This Moment On.”
