Here's how it's billed: "It's the end of the world as we know it. A flood of biblical proportions leaves us with only two people on Earth, who discover that their common language is song and dance. Together they chronicle the rise and fall and hopefully, rise again of humankind, through music that runs the gamut from Rodgers and Hammerstein to Sondheim, R.E.M. and Queen."
