Fly by Night  
Theo Ubique Cabaret Theatre at No Exit Cafe Fly by Night
 
Fly by Night, produced by New York City's Playwrights Horizons in 2014, is a darkly comic rock fable that tells the tale of a melancholy sandwich maker and his humdrum life, which is intersected by two entrancing sisters. The musical is set against the backdrop of the Northeast blackout of 1965, and unfolds a story about making your way and discovering hope in the world beset with darkness. This original musical was nominated for the 2015 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Musical. The New York Post said "Fly by Night will enchant audiences...Romance doesn't come any sweeter than it does in this winsome love triangle set around the time of the 1965 New York blackout. The score is charming and catchy. Its unabashed emotionalism could turn it into more than a hit. It could turn it into a cult phenomenon." Artistic Director Fred Anzevino will direct, with resident Music Director Jeremy Ramey providing the music direction.

She watches her circle of friends move from the idealism and political radicalism of their college years through militant feminism and, eventually, back to the materialism and conservatism that they originally sought to reject. Heidi slowly comes to realize that liberation can be achieved through being true to oneself. Follow along on her path to the truth at Chicago's Prop Thtr courtesy of The Cuckoo's Theater Project.
