About this show

The Universal Mind merges the musical landscape of Jim Morrison and The Doors and the enduring literary legacy of Beat poets into one unique American night--an evening at a Doors concert in 1969. Inspired by the tradition of early classical Greek theatre, which blended poetry and music with highly stylized movement and choreography, Randy Johnson has created a theatrical representation of how the incendiary voices of the Beats in the 1950s influenced the music of the man who invited us to "light my fire" in the 1960s. The Universal Mind is a collective and creative collaboration between Randy Johnson and renowned choreographer Debra Brown, principal choreographer for Cirque du Soleil for the past 20 years.
