The Old Man and the Old Moon
Also available: The Old Man and the Old Moon | Large Cast
The Old Man has kept his post as the sole caretaker of the moon for as long as he (or his wife, the Old Woman) can remember. When she is drawn away by a mysterious melody sparking memories of their shared past, the Old Man must decide between duty (and routine) and love (and adventure). Luckily for audiences everywhere, he chooses the latter, and what follows is an imaginative sea-faring epic, encompassing apocalyptic storms, civil wars, leviathans of the deep, and cantankerous ghosts, as well as the fiercest obstacle of all: change.
"This is a story of time and tides and quests, the sort of fable on which mythologies and religions are founded ... [PigPen] asks us to appreciate the finer arts of wild storytelling, while speaking to the childish mind in all of us."
The New York Times
Please be advised that the bass plays in the following three songs, and is tacet for the rest of the show.
#1 Song from the Stone
#5 Sail for Love
