WordTheatre’s In the Cosmos: Where We Come From, Where We Are, and Where We Are Going…
WordTheatre® takes you on a wild ride through the universe. From creation myths to the Big Bang to alien life forms, a constellation of actors will bring to life the story of the Cosmos in the words of the great poets, astronomers, comics, mythologists, musicians, philosophers, scientists, cosmological physicists, astronauts, and mystics. Accompanied by rousing renditions of classical and contemporary music, we will contemplate our galaxy with such visionaries as David Bowie, Elton John, Monty Python, Copernicus, Galileo, Einstein, Carl Sagan, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Stephen Hawking, and Diane Ackerman. Maestro Anthony Parnther conducts musical artists Inna Faliks, Starr Parodi, Amy Keys, Red Mandala, Lizzie Ball, Pedro Segundo, Page Hamilton, Wayne Bergeron, and many more. Original music by Jonathan Sacks and Starr Parodi. Created, directed, and produced by Cedering Fox.
Join us as we contemplate the cosmos with the stars under the stars at the historic 1,200 seat John Anson Ford Amphitheatre in Hollywood. Picnic at this beautiful, newly renovated outdoor theater and enjoy the balmy summer night air. Eat, drink, ponder, and laugh as we explore our relationship with the cosmos through the words and music of the world’s great scientific, literary, and musical minds.
