Theatre || I was looking at the ceiling and then I saw the sky

When: 2 - 17 July 2010 
Where: Theatre Royal Stratford East

 Details as follows:

"I loved it" 
4 Stars, Libby Purves, The Times   
"The ensemble carries the piece"4 stars, Evening Standard
"The versatile young music-theatre cast, conducted by Clark Rundell, was outstanding."
"Rivals Sondheim in its word-lust and psychological acuity."
"Raw, blithe and affirming"
The London Magazine

Financial Times   
"Superbly staged by Kerry Michael and Matthew Xia" The Arts Desk
Set in Los Angeles, I was looking at the ceiling and then I saw the sky (a quote from a survivor of the 1994 Northridge Earthquake) focuses on the lives of seven twenty-somethings as they become intertwined on their journey toward love and self-discovery.
When a catastrophic earthquake occurs, they are forced to confront unavoidable truths and their lives become irrevocably changed.
Rich in the sound and rhythms of American urban life, the songs of John Adams' piece of musical theatre make a rippling counterpoint of several love stories against a background of misunderstanding, violence, idealism and ingenuity.

Starring: Anna Mateo, Cynthia Erivo, Leon Lopez
