Based on a true story, In the Beginning is described as a new musical comedy about the beginnings of the Internet economy. “When tech-whiz Charlie Chadwick begins his work-release stint at the Abernathy Pet Supply Company, he soon wishes he were back in jail,” according to press notes. “With the sudden death of its beloved founder, employees are mutinying and the company is hemorrhaging money. Charlie joins forces with Kate Abernathy, the founder’s daughter and newly installed CEO, to develop The Abernathy Pet Sitter which relies on internet streaming, a concept only dreamed about in in 1992. When the porn industry’s top producer turns up as the product’s only investor, a hilarious journey of twists and turns ensues at the tech and porn worlds collide.”
In the Beginning also has musical direction by Rick Hip-Flores, casting by Michael Cassara, and general management by Daniel Kuney.
