Directing Capstone: Conservatory presents 'Fly By Night,' April 6-8
 'Fly By Night,' April 6–8 on Stage lll, is the directing capstone project by Brook Viegut.

The Conservatory of Theatre Arts in Webster University's Leigh Gerdine College of Fine Arts presents the directing capstone project, "Fly By Night," directed by Brook Viegut on Stage III April 6-8.

Synopsis

A star-crossed prophecy. A lot of music. Just not a lot of light. In this darkly comic rock-fable, a melancholy sandwich maker’s humdrum life is intersected by two entrancing sisters. A sweeping ode to young love set against the backdrop of the Northeast blackout of 1965, "Fly By Night" is a tale about making your way and discovering hope in a world beset by darkness.

"The ways in which these people [...] intersect are meant to evoke a cosmic pattern, a sense of the invisible connective tissue that underlies the mundane [...] The score flirts with early rock ’n’ roll, as well as recurrent motifs that are guaranteed to take up longtime residence in your ear." - The New York Times
