  • SYNOPSIS

    Set in the 1950’s, Flying Over Sunset is a work of fiction inspired by the lives of three extraordinary and accomplished people—writer Aldous Huxley; playwright, diplomat, and congresswoman, Clare Booth Luce; and film legend Cary Grant—each of whom in real life experimented with the drug LSD. At a crossroads in their lives the three come together, and under the influence of the drug, take a trip and confront the mysteries of their lives and their world.
  • The musical features a book and direction by Lapine (Falsettos, Sunday in the Park With George), music by Kitt (Next to Normal, If/Then), and lyrics by Korie (War Paint, Grey Gardens). Michelle Dorrance, founder and artistic director of Dorrance Dance, will make her theatrical debut as choreographer.
