A workaholic Greek god gets tangled up with a security guard in the basement of the tallest building in the world. One mistake leads to another - a lost pair of scissors, a kiss, a stolen string - and soon Atropos is breaking her own rules to offer forever to an ordinary man. Can the fabric of the universe stand a flaw? A stunningly beautiful musical about fate and love in the modern world.

This production will use theatrical strobe lighting effects.

Special thanks to Margo Skornia for dramaturgical assistance.

Orchestrations by Frank Galgano and Matt Castle.
