Now. Here. This. is a new musical that explores life’s big questions and celebrates living in the present. As ragtag group of friends explore a museum they bond over birds, bees, reptiles, early man, ancient civilizations and outer space. Also, loneliness, friendship, hoarding, hiding, laughing, living and dying. And middle school. And dinosaurs. Created by the creative team behind the Tony-nominated [title of show], Now. Here. This is an original "theatri-concert" explores what goes down in the space between the past and the future, and how the universe conspires to bring people together. Now. Here. This. is about dreamers and romantics and how difficult it can be to stay in the present moment - or being tuned into the now, the here and the this. NOW. HERE. THIS
