Molly Murphy & Neil deGrasse Tyson On Our Last Day On Earth is part indie lecture series and part musical cabaret. The story follows a down-and-out Molly Murphy on her quest to meet her biggest hero, famous astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson in the last 24 hours before the Earth is swallowed by a super-massive black hole. Along with a gang of Hayden Planetarium employees, they ponder their place in the universe. All while grappling with their relationships to themselves and the world, that happens to be falling apart minute by minute.

Molly Murphy & Neil deGrasse Tyson On Our Last Day On Earth plays at Playwrights Horizons South Studio as follows: Tuesday, July 12th at 7:30 PM, Saturday, July 16th at 7:30 PM, and Sunday, July 17th at 3:30 PM.
