About the Premiere Production

“As I remember, I had just woken up from a nap when I decided to create the universe.”

Mr g creates time, space, matter, a few basic laws of physics. These give birth to stars, planets… but intelligent life? The Creator’s plans go awry when a mysterious rival questions the nature of free will. Together, we experience the birth and fate of Mr g’s favorite universe: ours. Adapted by Wesley Savick (who staged Lightman’s Einstein’s Dreams and Car Talk: The Musical!!!), Mr g is “…witty, erudite, alive with Lightman’s playful genius.”
