About Return to the Forbidden Planet

Prepare to blast off with this musical space odyssey of Shakespearean proportions. Exploding with over thirty cosmic hits of classic rock-n-roll, and playfully based on The Tempest and the cinematic sci-fi classic, this fun-filled musical rockets Shakespeare’s beloved characters from stage to space with Tony Award nominees Steven Boyer, Patrick Page, and Mary Testa, along with Kim Exum, Jo Lampert, Amy Spanger, and a cosmos of intergalactic luminaries.

With songs including “Great Balls of Fire,” “Shake Rattle and Roll,” “The Monster Mash,” and “Good Vibrations” along with some of Shakespeare’s most iconic phraseology catapulted through hyperspace into a campy concoction, this rare opportunity to experience this Olivier Award-winning musical is not to be missed.
