IT’S THE REST OF THE WORLD THAT LOOKS SO SMALL (A THEATRICAL REVUE OF JONATHAN COULTON)

Music and Lyrics by Jonathan Coulton
Directed by Jason Schlafstein* and Vaughn Irving*

Popular singer/songwriter and cult classic Jonathan Coulton is known for his clever, engaging, and humorous songs that capture slice-of-life moments in high-concept situations — from zombie co-workers to lonely sea monsters. Using dance, puppetry, and new arrangements with a live band, Flying V is staging a collection of Coulton’s songs and exploring what it means to be human in a vast world of possibility.

BE AWESOME!
