Signature Theatre's world-premiere production of Light Years, a new musical featuring music, lyrics, and book by Robbie Schaefer, has released its first set of images. Signature Theatre artistic director Eric Schaeffer helms the production, running through March 4 in the MAX Theatre.

Light Years follows Robbie, who journeys from his childhood home in India to the joys and struggles of growing up, pursuing his passion, and raising a family. Entwined throughout is his cherished relationship with his father — and his father's haunted past.
