A celebrated scientist, Atom is on the verge of completing his most personal and mercurial experiment: the creation of the perfect partner. Suddenly, an explosive release of energy knocks Atom unconscious and creates two opposing beings: Chaos and Serena. After a violent struggle erupts between the two, one flees wounded. Atom awakens unaware to his destroyed laboratory, safe within the soft embrace of his adoring creation Serena.
After building a picturesque life with her, Atom's subconscious begins to split and splice as he's pulled head first through his dreams into a topsy-turvy world dominated by Chaos, it's enigmatic cult leader. While his life with Serena offers peace, tranquility, and love, the world of Chaos provides possibilities too enticing to ignore. Atom finds his life, identity, and sexuality unraveling amidst torrential dreams, psychedelic montages, gyrating henchman, seedy underground clubs, and bipolar moonlighting.
Faster Than the Speed of Light! is a multimedia sci-fi musical journey of ukulele ballads, hip technology, sweeping string numbers, dramatic dance and classic story telling. With a production crew of more than thirty Austin professionals, this tale of a torn between two worlds will come to life before your eyes.
"I've got a strong hold on this rushing feeling, as the walls shake and the hinges break... and the floor hits the ceiling." sings Serena lovingly.
"... and for every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you, " theorizes Atom from his basement laboratory.
"but only through Chaos can you truly do what you want to." cackles Chaos from his seedy pulpit.
