Genre: Kids
Written by Tommy Smith, Directed by Kevin Laibson

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.
