Pig Iron Theatre Company pulls off its largest production to date; a marriage of original music, sweeping set design and theater. The five-movement work features a cast of no fewer than 80 people of all ages, colors and walks of life who contemplate their existence in a time when climate change threatens to wipe them off the earth. It sounds terrifying, yes, but the coming together of so many individuals who realize they have more in common than not promises to leave you all goose-pimply and inspired. Bring a tissue.
