Ray of Light teams up with Tony winners Greg Kotis and Mark Hollmann, the brains behind the smash-hit Urinetown, to develop the West Coast premiere of this bizarrely hilarious rock musical. In the year 3,000,458,000 B.C., the salt-eating yeasts are the only living creatures on earth, and they’re up against a food shortage, a strange new emotion called “love” and the oppression of a tyrannical king. When the king’s dreamer of a son ventures out of the known yeastiverse, the yeasts’ story – and ours – is changed forever. “This is the rare satire that knows exactly what it’s doing and commits to it.” -New York Times “When you’ve stopped laughing from this yeast infection, you can tap your toes and clap your hands to a wholly lovable score.” -Chicago Tribune
