Mission Drift

A series of mythic and modern tales collide in this musical tale created by the New York ensemble The Team. A journey is taken across the United States, in search of American capitalism, and is told via music that mixes Las Vegas glittering gaudiness with rock and gospel sounds. Directed by Rachel Chavkin, composed by Heather Christian.
