This award winning, timely one-woman play THE SEARCH FOR SIGNS OF INTELLIGENT LIFE IN THE UNIVERSE explores American society, art, power, and the feminist movement through a comedic and quick-witted investigation.
The Shed is thrilled to present a newly commissioned production of THE SEARCH FOR SIGNS OF INTELLIGENT LIFE IN THE UNIVERSE, freshly revisited by playwright Jane Wagner. Tony nominated director Leigh Silverman (Lifespan of a Fact, Violet) will stage the iconic play starring Cecily Strong (Saturday Night Live, Schmigadoon!) in her theatrical debut. James Alsop (“Girls 5 Eva”) will choreograph.
The creative team includes Christine Jones and Mary Hamrick (Co-Set Design), Anita Yavich (Costume Design), Stacey Derosier (Lighting Design), Elisheba Ittoop (Sound Designer/Composer), Justin Scribner (Production Stage Manager). Lily Tomlin, who originated the role, serves as executive producer with Jane Wagner.
