A Musical About Star Wars – or Why Star Wars is the Greatest Thing in the Galaxy, Much Much Better than Star Trek officially opens May 4 at Off-Broadway's Theatre Row. The new musical comedy is produced and directed by Tom and Michael D'Angora, the team behind Off-Broadway's The Marvelous Wonderettes and NEWSical The Musical.

The production stars Taylor Crousore, Scott Richard Foster, and Emily McNamara, as Taylor, Scott, and Emily, respectively.
