Atomic
1 Nov


Sydney October 26 2017 – ORiGiN Theatrical is thrilled to announce the representation of 
                                              ATOMIC The New Rock Musical for the world. 

                                              Book and Lyrics by Danny Ginges. 
                                              Music and Lyrics by Philip Foxman. 
                                              Created by Danny Ginges.


Synopsis 
Most people know about the atom bombs that ended WWII. However, the story of the scientists that created those bombs is a gripping tale of hope and fear that still remains largely untold. Particularly the story of Leo Szilard, the man who first conceived the means to harness atomic energy; alerted the US Government to the threat of a Nazi atomic bomb; co-designed the world’s first nuclear reactor; and then, once Germany had surrendered, tried to prevent his creation’s use against Japanese cities. It’s the story of Frankenstein’s monster with far higher stakes. And it actually happened.


Cast: 5M, 2F + Ensemble(optional 1M and 1F understudy)
Band Parts:Piano, Keyboard, Guitars, Bass Guitar/Double Bass, Cello, Drums, Violin.
