I Was Looking At the Ceiling And then I Saw the Sky

Synopsis:
Set in Los Angeles, I was looking at the ceiling and then I saw the sky (a quote from a survivor of the 1994 Northridge earthquake) focuses on the lives of seven twenty-somethings as they become intertwined on their journey toward love and self-discovery. When a catastrophic earthquake occurs, they are forced to confront unavoidable truths and their lives become irrevocably changed. Rich in the sound and rhythms of American urban life, the songs of John adams' piece of musical theatre make a rippling counterpoint of several love stories against a background of misunderstanding, violence, idealism and ingenuity.
