Work of Eco-Theater JUPITER to Play LaMaMa in FebruaryWork of Eco-Theater JUPITER to Play LaMaMa in February
by BWW News Desk - Jan 7, 2016

'JUPITER (a play about power)' by Superhero Clubhouse and Kaimera Productions is an argument of soaring irony and logic between humanity and a dude with one-time magic who has made all fossil fuels disappear permanently from the Earth.

That is the one-act 'dream play' that will be offered to us by playwright Jeremy Pickard, director Simon Adinia Hanukai and musician/energy policy specialist Jonathan Camuzeaux, presented by La Mama from February 11-28, 2016.
