Humanity is what we make of it.

A sci-fi rock musical based on Karel Capek's play R.U.R., which invented the word "robot." A new life form of artificial people called Robots has made a young businessman billions and humanity dependent on them. When the line between humans and Robots become a blur, both species must help each other to save all life on earth. Featuring a diverse musical score of epic power-pop anthems, you'll think, laugh, and appreciate what you've got a little more. To save humanity, we must SAVE THE ROBOTS!

Please note: Platinum or Diamond Members and Patrons may book tickets online after June 2. Tickets will be released to the general public 48 hours prior to curtain on an as-available basis.

Running Time: 1 hour and 35 minutes with no intermission
