Charge of the Moon

In the days before our modern notion of physics, it was thought that the sun, stars, and planets were moved by the agents of the Almighty. Angels of the fourth, sixth, and seventh rank took care of Jupiter, Mars, and the Sun. Angels of the third rank ran Saturn, and the Cherubim had charge of the fixed stars. It was commonly agreed that it was only the most lowly of angels who had Charge of the Moon.

Charge of the Moon — A tale of three angels that don’t even make it onto the chart. Never mind a planet, these three have been given the seemingly simple task of looking our for just one person – a young woman named Sue. Sue finds herself on the 28th floor ledge of her office building. She stares down at the flashing lights and eager thrill seekers below. Dizzy with fear, she is visited by these three “almost angels” who guide her backwards through her childhood to play out the moments that got her to where she is today. In a desperate attempt to save her and work their way up the divine ladder, it is unclear if they help her or push her closer to the edge.

Charge of the Moon is both funny and tragic, filled with song and visually stunning images to create a unique theatrical experience that will not be quickly forgotten.
