Sky-Pony is planning a concert-theatre hybrid stage performance that incorporates songs from the record as well as several others. A co-production with The Play Company, directed by Tony nominee Sam Buntrock, it is scheduled to run Feb. 16-March 19, 2016, Off-Broadway at Ars NovaTheatre.

The octet also features Kevin Wunderlich (guitar), Eric Day (bass), Perry Silver (drums), David Blasher (cello) and Kristin Piacentile and Jessi Suzuki (backing vocals).
