NASA’s Apollo Program has been called the last optimistic act of the 20th century. Twelve men made the longest and most eccentric of all journeys and all were indelibly marked by it. Seen through the eyes of the astronauts, Edwards' dramatic, musical re-telling reveals the human side to making history - from the families left behind to the men who struggled, to return to Earth.

The musical premiered in 2007 at the Derby Playhouse in the United Kingdom and was nominated for a TMA award for "Best Musical Production." This concert production will showcase selections from Stephen Edwards' Moon Landing in its U.S. premiere.
