Off-Broadway Sci-Fi Fun!

Described by critics as the "next Rocky Horror Show", It Came From Beyond is a loving musical spoof of b-movies, full of invading aliens, chiselled jawed heroes, and stilted dialogue. The story centers on a lovesick high school geek who discovers an interplanetary secret hidden in a comic book, and an astronomer convinced that aliens are heading our way.

Featuring a main cast of five who each play two roles each, It Came From Beyond is dizzy family friendly fun, which also incorporates clips from old sci-fi classics, like Invaders from Mars and Ed Wood's Plan 9 from Outer Space. This St Luke's staging is written by Cornell Christianson, while Norman E. Thalheimer and Stephen M. Schwartz provide the music and lyrics.

Cranston's wrenching performance stands on its own. In context, it's a terrifying reminder of how an all-too-human, anger-filled public figure, with access to a worldwide stage, can be mistaken for a god.
