Wasteland – The Musical of the Future
Sep 18, 2019 - 7:00 PM
More timely and ground-breaking than ever, Tod Kimbro revives his masterpiece Wasteland for a ONE NIGHT ONLY performance as part of Florida Theatrical Association’s New Musical Discovery Series.
Wasteland tells the post-apocalyptic tale of Mogs McCallister-Alvarez, an aspiring medical professional trying to make a name for himself in The City, a domed playground where all good citizens have tiny computers implanted in their brains and a ruthless celebrity President rules over his perpetually distracted public. Mogs finds himself falling in love with the President’s protege, a brilliant pop star named Sunny Day, and the two young lovers begin a virtual romance. But when Mogs receives a debilitating computer virus (courtesy of the Prez) he must make a choice: continue spiraling downward with a buggy, infected brain or leave the City and rejoin the scrappy band of rebels who raised him—that is, if he can escape the President’s clutches. Equal parts sci-fi epic, social satire, and high-energy rock show, Wasteland depicts a future America that is hilariously and frighteningly possible.
