Adapted from the 2007 Julie Taymor film “Across The Universe” by our members here at DCUDrama, performed on November 27th 2018.
One Liverpool man’s search for his father across the Atlantic plummets him into the controversial and changing 1960s America, amidst the anti-war movement and leads him to an All-American girl who wants to change the world. Building off the aesthetic of The Beatles, Across the Universe sees its eccentric characters struggle with their dreams, drugs, and love, love love. Beautiful and strange, the story lets its music shape it, allowing for a gig-like feel as it moves through the many Beatles eras.
