Fund Astronaut Love Show -a new musical by Leschen & Sauter (Bedbugs!!!)
ABOUT THE SHOW
The Astronaut Love Show (working title) is a fast paced, darkly comedic original musical that tells three extraordinary “love stories” adapted from the news and the tabloids.
The first concerns a female astronaut who drove across the country (allegedly wearing a hi-tech diaper), with a trunk full of weapons, to “talk” with the new girlfriend of her love interest, also a hotshot Astronaut.
The second is the fascinating tale of a lonely gay German cannibal who seeks a willing victim online. It’s admittedly dark, but when we tell it, it’s also quite funny, surprisingly romantic and even… touching.
The third story is a two-parter about a former Southern beauty queen who stalked, kidnapped and allegedly “raped” a Mormon missionary back in 1977, and then decades later went on to become the first person to have her dog, a heroic pitbull terrier, commercially cloned!
All three stories deal in loneliness, obsession, and some overarching relation to modern space-age technology as a means for acting upon our innermost desires. We ask, perhaps is this technology pushing society over the edge into a hot cauldron of crazy?
HISTORY OF SHOW
The show has been in development since 2008, and has has several readings. This is the first time it will be staged, and is being self-produced by the writers with the hope of attracting interest from producers, theatre companies and others who can help them take it further.
