Press notes for the NYMF production read: "Sparks and saucers fly in this charming new musical when an emotional alien girl from an unemotional planet, Nine-O, comes to Roswell to find romance and falls in love with Joe 'Scoop' O’Reilly, a down-on-his luck reporter who needs a big story to get back in the game. When he finds out that the new waitress in the diner is more than she seems to be, will he chose the love of his life or the story of the century?"
The creative team includes Michelle Weber (choreography), Kim Steiner (musical direction), Joseph Gourley (set design), Keith Schneider (costume design), Chris Studley (lighting design) and David Margolin Lawson (sound design).
