A.C.T. to Present the World-Premiere Musical A WALK ON THE MOON

A Walk on the Moon is the gorgeous musical version of Pamela Gray’s film about the moment in 1969 when Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, and the hopes and dreams of so many Americans walked with him,” says A.C.T. Artistic Director Carey Perloff. “The piece is about the pain and thrill of change, both personally and politically, and features original music, complex characters, and the indelible setting of a Jewish bungalow colony in upstate New York. I know it’s going to be a joyful and epic way to end our season!”
