The Public Theater has announced that Ethan Lipton's world premiere musical The Outer Space will begin previews on February 23 for an extended run at Joe's Pub through April 9. Directed by Leigh Silverman, the show has an official press opening set for March 8.

With book and lyrics by Lipton, The Outer Space also features music composed and performed by Ethan Lipton, Vito Dieterle, Eben Levy, and Ian Riggs. The tale follows two human beings who buy an old spaceship, leaving the noise, pollution, and overpriced rents of Earth for the vast beauty and treacherous terrain of the final frontier.

The Outer Space features scenic and costume design by David Zinn, lighting design by Ben Stanton, and sound design by Nicholas Pope.

Continuing the Public's mission to make great theater accessible to all, the Public's First Performance "Free for All" returns this spring, with free tickets to the first preview on February 23 available February 16 via mobile lottery.
