1950s Hollywood. You are at a beautiful beach house overlooking the Pacific with Cary Grant, Clare Boothe Luce and Aldous Huxley… and they are on an acid trip. Together. That is the bold premise of FLYING OVER SUNSET, a new musical written and directed by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award® winner James Lapine (Sunday in the Park with George, Into the Woods, Falsettos) with a score written by Pulitzer Prize, Emmy® and Tony Award winner Tom Kitt (Next to Normal) and Tony nominee Michael Korie (Grey Gardens), and choreography by MacArthur grant winner Michelle Dorrance.
What do movie star Carey Grant, author Aldous Huxley, and diplomat-cum-playwright Clare Boothe Luce have in common? In their heyday, each of them experimented with the drug LSD. Yes, you read that correctly. The new musical Flying Over Sunset is a fictional imagining of the three public figures meeting in Malibu in the 1950s and sharing a hallucinogenic experience together. Flying Over Sunset tickets are available now. Get Flying Over Sunset Broadway tickets on TodayTix.
Written and directed by James Lapine, the Flying Over Sunset musical features music by Tom Kitt and lyrics by Michael Korie. The first act follows the historical characters’ first time using the drug, and act two brings the trio together to drop acid — a trip that leads to introspective searching and the discovery of deep-seated truths for the mid-life figures. This LSD-induced journey is marked by percussive tap dancing, choreographed by Michelle Dorrance, who is making her theatrical debut with this show. Flying Over Sunset in New York is certain to provide a memorable trip.
