SPACEMAN Will Relaunch Off-Broadway
After an unfortunate "failure to launch" mishap, Loading Dock Theatre is thrilled to announce that Leegrid Steven's Spaceman has once again been cleared for take-off and will launch into the Off-Broadway stratosphere beginning February 2019. This exciting news comes after the originally scheduled debut was forced to close after only one preview when leading lady Erin Treadway suffered a substantial fall that left her with serious fractures to both arms and left wrist.
Spaceman, a unique theatrical experience that utilizes low light, a claustrophobic set and simulated micro-gravity to simulate space travel, follows astronaut Molly Jennis on her attempt to be the first human to reach Mars. Beginning seven months into an eight-month journey to the red planet, she is the lone crew member of the space module Aeneas. With a mission to establish a new colony, the difficulties of interplanetary space travel are brought to life in exacting detail. Radiation exposure, long term weightlessness, low light, extensive communication delays and poor hygiene are just a few of the challenges Molly Jennis must face on her quest to be the first to Mars, but she soon finds nothing compares to the psychological effects of having so much time alone.
Spaceman will play a strictly limited engagement at New York City's The Wild Project (located at 195 East 3rd Street, between Avenues A and B), home to the previously scheduled debut, beginning Thursday, February 14, 2019, and running through Saturday, March 9, 2019. An official opening day has been set for Sunday, February 17 at 4:00PM. Tickets are available for purchase online via OvationTix or by phone at (866) 811-4111.
