The new musical, according to press notes, concerns "a critical mythologist who, through confronting his demons, evolves into the imaginative author of his own original mythology - as if Jung transformed into Tolkien. A giant glass tank of real water is the show's center piece, where actors and huge puppets swim and perform. Combining a visit to the aquarium and a Broadway show, it will transport the audience to an unbelievably beautiful world."
