A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away...a Staten Island Blockbuster Video to be exact...Two Star Wars fanatics, Scott and Taylor, write the most epic Star Wars musical ever. On their endless quest to perform it at Comic Con - a restraining order filed by Warwick Davis stands in their way - they have opted to perform it on the glamorous off-Broadway stages instead! However, dark forces are looming over their production, and her name is Emily. "Do Scott and Taylor prevail? Does the show make it to Comic Con? The answers are less important than the fun time you'll have getting there! May the FUN be with you!" - Theasy.com
"As someone who wrote his college application essay on Revenge of the Sith, it has been an absolute dream to be able to combine two of my favorite things-musical theatre and Star Wars-with this score. I can't wait to be able to share these wacky, ridiculous songs with a galaxy not too far away on our Original Cast Recording. I can only hope that one day, another High School Senior on Long Island will write their own college app essay about this album." - composer/lyricist Billy Recce
