The show follows Tom and Sue as they search for their lost identities by visiting imaginary places that embody the pivotal experiences of their lives. The audience literally travels with them on a journey through 21 fantastical “lands,” twenty singers/dances, a live nine-piece orchestra, huge art installations, and the collaboration of twenty-one Librettists and eleven composers all in a vacant 25,000 square foot Culver City car dealership donated for this project by Joseph Miller of Runyon Partners.
