Enter the world of Esteban Only – the last Boricua in space! Written and directed by Alvan Colón-Lespier. Musical Director Desmar Guevara.

ABOUT

Floating in space thousands and thousands of miles away from us, Esteban Only is calling, yet his call goes unnoticed and his world gets further away with each breath. Esteban Only is alone, yearning to bridge the gap between his reality and those who lovingly await for his return.

Welcome to the world of Puerto Rican astronaut Esteban Only! Stranded in the U.S. Wanderer, an old space station locked in orbit around Mars, Esteban’s only human contact —via intermittent, static-ridden radio communications— is fellow space mission veteran Emily Kinson, whom he hopes will help him find his way back home to Earth.

Inspired by autobiographical accounts and actual training missions by NASA personnel, and rich with the sights, sounds, and surprises of classic science fiction, The Desire of The Astronaut is a must-see new musical!

Written and directed by Alvan Colón Lespier. Music by Desmar Guevara. Additional texts by Emily Dickinson and F. Scott Fitzgerald.

 

Performed in English.
