The Eleventh Hour!, a new rock musical comedy by David Seamon will play from Sept. 21 to Nov. 16, at Town Stages, 221 West Broadway.

It's the end of the world in New Jersey. A burnout basement rocker and his ex-girlfriend, a rising star astrophysicist, may have the key to surviving the black hole bearing down on earth. If they can reconcile their feelings and manage a dangerous journey on the NJ Turnpike, they just may save their music, each other, and the mole people who live beneath them.

The Eleventh Hour! features music, book, and lyrics by David Seamon, direction by Jessica Francis Fichter, and is produced by Smugbug Productions. The story for the musical was originally created by Seamon, Annie Rutherford Lutz, and Shimmy Schwartz through a commission by coLAB Arts.

Performances are at 8 p.m., with preshow bands starting at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $35 and are available at here.

Cast: Henry Fisher (Nevin Denham), Olivia London (Neil DeGrasse Tyson), Miranda Luze (Amy Leonardo), Christopher Pasi (Astor Whitewater), Joshuah D. Simpson (Shawn Ryan), Brianne Wylie (Thelma).
