Boulders, buildings and the occasional bartender are being swallowed in the ground due to fracking. And that's only the beginning...
From the creator of Pool Boy and the acclaimed director of Be More Chill comes Fall Springs, an irreverent, funny and relevant new musical. The town of Fall Springs is cash-strapped but sits directly on top of America's largest reserve of cosmetic essential oils. It has big dreams, but at what cost? With new fracking techniques being recklessly implemented, the ground beneath Fall Springs is crumbling.
Fall Springs features Alyse Alan Louis (Broadway's Amelie) as "Eloise Bradley," Matt McGrath (Lucille Lortel Award winner The Legend of Georgia McBride) as "Mayor Bradley," Ellen Harvey (BSC's Company) as "Beverly Cushman," L.E. Barone (Dirty Blonde) as "Vera Mariposa," Sam Heldt (Diversionary Theatre's The Loneliest Girl in the World) as "Felix Cushman," Jorrel Javier (The Lightning Thief National Tour) as "Cooper Mitford," Felicia Finley (Broadway's The Wedding Singer) as "Veronica Mitford," Ken Marks (Broadway's Airline Highway) as "Noland Wolanske," Eliseo Román (Broadway's On Your Feet!) as "Roberto Mariposa " and Austen Danielle Bohmer.
