Production History

Demon Dreams  | Open: 07/06/11 Close: 07/17/11
Magic Futurebox proudly presents the NYC premiere of Demon Dreams: a children's musical (for all audiences) by Lark PONY fellow Tommy Smith, featuring music by Paul D. Miller AKA DJ Spooky. In a not-so-distant future where humanity is just a memory and demons rule the earth, three demons and three immortals gather in a broken down temple to tell stories and spit rhymes, arguing the inherent goodness or wickedness of the human race. Starring 6 actors in over 50 different roles, Demon Dreams fuses traditional Japanese story-telling with a hip hop aesthetic to bring you a fast-paced, enchanting allegory about the complexities of human nature.

The Pestilence Is Coming! (a Super Fun New Musical About How You Will Probably Die)  | Open: 07/05/12 Close: 07/22/12
 The Pestilence is Coming is a super fun new musical about how you will probably die, based on the album of the same name by Ohio indie rock band, The Minor Leagues.

 

Welcome to Center Square USA: where prosperity comes in giant supermarket form, even as the town dries up around it. For young Jake, comic book collector and all-purpose observer, the arrival of the Big Green Super Mart spells death of a certain way of life. But there will soon come a more immediate threat in the form of a killer plague. Does his town– or humanity– stand a chance? The answer lies somewhere in Montreal with a mysterious and seductive super-scientist.

 

Come visit a post-apocalyptic theater for rats by rats and hear their favorite story celebrating the events that led to a world free from human tyranny: an indie-pop musical performed by nine pet people playing more than sixty-five characters.
