Over the Moon

SYNOPSIS

Over the Moon is a show created from Jonathan Larson’s work. Five performers accompanied by a piano go deeply into the essence of this composer with songs that make us wonder who we are and what we want.
Over the Moon goes deeply into Larson’s sound universe of pop/rock and takes other known and performed shows like Rent and Tick, Tick Boom! We do it with five performers and a piano to capture only the essence, only what is genuine Larson, where we found the most sincere author who shares his secrets, his fears and insecurities, his dreams, his goals or ideology with the audience. Format is reviewed and songs are free of any kind of artifice which moves away from the speech.
In Over the Moon you will listen to another rent, another Tick Tick Boom! and another collection of Larson’s songs that will move us away from his plots and original characters to create a more personal image of the author through an intimate atmosphere between the audience and the interpreters.
The harsh reality we are living connects us with songs written almost twenty years ago but which seem to describe the current world. Larson’s untimely death shortly before releasing his first success gave these songs almost a prophetic title for everything that was about to happen in his life and everything that was about to happen in the world.
