The World of Tomorrow

Inspired by the 1939 World’s Fair in New York, the World of Tomorrow utilizes innovative musical arrangements, narration, costume and prop design to present the contrast between the ‘retro-future’ that was imagined in the mid-20th century—the titular ‘World of Tomorrow’—and the reality of the future we find ourselves in. At first pessimistic, the show ultimately ends on an upbeat tone.

Music is drawn from Cornfield Chase from Hans Zimmer’s score to the film Interstellar [2014], Coldplay’s hit A Sky Full of Stars [2014], Michael Giacchino’s Enterprising Young Men from the film Star Trek [2009], and Somewhere Over the Rainbow, the number one song of 1939.
