Photos: First Look at PigPen Theatre Co.'s THE OLD MAN AND THE OLD MOON

PigPen Theatre Co. presents The Old Man and The Old Moon, directed by Writers Theatre Associate Artistic Director Stuart Carden. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

The Old Man and The Old Moon creates an epic new mythology, centered on a man whose job is to collect spilled light to refill the leaking moon. When his wife unexpectedly leaves home in pursuit of much-needed adventure, he abandons his post to follow her, throwing the world into chaos as he searches for his lost love, his fading memory and, ultimately, himself.

A blend of resonant storytelling, spirited indie-folk music and inventive puppetry creates a theatrical experience that will win audiences over with its wit, style and depth of emotion.

The cast features Alex Falberg, Ben Ferguson, Curtis Gillen, Ryan Melia, Matt Nuernberger, Arya Shahi and Dan Weschler. Designers include Lydia Fine and Bart Cortright; Mikhail Fiksel (sound); MerEdith Miller (props master).
