Vanishing Point was written by Rob Hartmann, Liv Cummins and Scott Keys.
Vanishing Point "intertwines the stories of Amelia Earhart, who disappeared during her round-the-world flight in 1937; Agatha Christie, who disappeared for 11 days in 1926 after discovering her husband's adultery; and evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson, who disappeared while swimming in the Pacific, only to reappear three weeks later in the Arizona desert claiming she'd been kidnapped," according to press notes. "The musical imagines that these three women came together in a mysterious 'vanishing point' where they replay their lives to determine if they want to return to the world."
Along with portraying the trio of women, the cast also plays the roles of everyone else in their lives.
