WILD BLUE a musical revue 
Music by Rob Hartmann • Book & Lyrics by Scott Keys & Liv Cummins • Additional lyrics by Rob Hartmann

Every night, PJ has flying dreams - but not your ordinary flying dreams. He finds himself falling through the entire history of aviation: in a balloon with the Montgolfier brothers; in Leonardo Da Vinci's workshop; in the cockpit with Charles Lindbergh; in the navigator's seat trying to decipher maps for Amelia Earhart; and at Kitty Hawk, when the Wright brothers first launched.

The show uncovers some lesser-known stories of aviation: Bessie Coleman, the first female African-American pilot; the WASPs (Women Air Service Pilots), who flew fighter planes in World War II; and Wrong-Way Corrigan, who "accidentally" flew the wrong direction - across the Atlantic to Ireland instead of across the US to Los Angeles.

WILD BLUE was originally commissioned by the Human Race Theatre Company in Dayton, Ohio (home of the Wright brothers) to commemorate the centennial of the Wright's first flight. The show was originally written for a cast of five (3m, 2w); however, cast size is flexible/expandable. PJ can be played by either a man or a woman.
