"Watson: trusty sidekick to Sherlock Holmes; loyal engineer who built Bell's first telephone; unstoppable super-computer that became reigning 'Jeopardy!' champ; amiable techno-dweeb who, in the present day, is just looking for love," press notes state. "These four constant companions become one in this brilliantly witty, time-jumping, loving tribute (and cautionary tale) dedicated to the people — and machines — upon which we all depend."
Fly By Night: A New Musical will receive its New York premiere at Playwrights Horizons, directed by Carolyn Cantor (The Great God Pan, After the Revolution, Pumpgirl, Orange Flower Water).
Conceived by Kim Rosenstock (Tigers Be Still) and written by Will Connolly (performer, Once), Michael Mitnick (Sex Lives of Our Parents) and Rosenstock, Fly By Night: A New Musical will be presented as the final production of the season. Previews begin May 16, 2014.
"In this darkly comic rock-fable, a melancholy sandwich maker's hum-drum life is intersected by two entrancing sisters," press notes state. "A sweeping ode to young love set against the backdrop of the northeast blackout of 1965, Fly By Night is a tale about making your way and discovering hope in a world beset by darkness."
As previously reported, the season will also feature Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play;The Patron Saint of Sea Monsters;Stage Kiss; and Your Mother's Copy of the Kama Sutra.
