So, if you are like “Un-Block The Music,” your Memorial Day plans are drowning in a puddle, but I have something fun for you to watch! The new musical is Capricorn 29 by Alex Hare and Julia Izumi with some of the music written by an upcoming “Woman Wonder” Laura Galindo.
The story goes like this. On the eve of her 29th birthday, a millennial stumbles upon a curious conspiracy theory: the powers-that-be have initiated a new capitalist plot to eliminate unsuccessful 30 year olds. She has to save be the savior of her generation. Press nots say, “Unfolding in the form of a hallucinatory YouTube wormhole, Capricorn 29 is a micro movie musical that wrestles with the tyranny of age-based milestones.”
“Un-Block The Music” spoke with Laura recently about her work on the show which also features songs by Daniel and Patrick Lazour, Stompcat and Storm Thomas .
