DARE TO BEHOLD THIS EROTIC QUIXOTIC MUSICAL FANTASIA!

Length: 2 hrs 30 mins
Intermission: Yes
Seating: General Admission
You choose your seats when you get to the theater.

THE ISLAND OF NO TOMORROWS by Fengar Gael is not your traditional musical. The infant Esperanza's mother dies in childbirth, and Esperanza is given an artificial heart but not expected to live. Her father, Don Hilardo, sequesters Esperanza at Villa Leche, his ideal of heaven on earth, filled with a bevy of voluptuous nursing mothers to care for her until the dreaded day arrives. But Esperanza defies the odds in this madcap exploration of sexual subjugation, political oppression, and the challenges of parenting in the electronic age.

This world premiere is MultiStages New Works Contest Winner.
