Musical Sci Fi Off Broadway

Can you believe it? Someone is actually doing a musical based on the 1984 movie "The Last Starfighter". The movie was the story of a kid who becomes so proficient at a video game that he is called upon by an alien race to help save the universe. It wasn't bad, not great. I think I still have it on an old VHS tape somewhere. It did mark the last movie by the great Robert Preston.

The musical marks the return of lyricist-composer Skip Kennon (Herringbone, Time and Again) ... Fred Landau penned the libretto.

It will open the 2004-05 season of Off Broadway's Storm Theatre, Oct. 15-30.
