Live! From Tomorrow
An epic musical comedy about tech and innovation, think The Producers meets Gimlet’s ‘Startup’ podcast. Over five episodes, the inaugural season tells the extraordinary story of our lead, Matt Hooper, as he launches his new venture – a variety show-within-the-show known as Live! From Tomorrow. Throughout the first season, Matt tackles subjects like climate change, blockchain, coworking, cryptocurrencies, automation, and AI, and interviews real-life icons and innovators like Andrew Yang, Akon, and Jesse Jackson. Recorded in the style of a cast album, the show seamlessly combines studio recordings with live performances and additional interviews with industry experts including Mark Anthony Thomas (Pittsburgh Regional Alliance; fmr NYCEDC), Kelcey Gosserand (IBM), and Anders Bering (Mars, Inc.; fmr Carlsberg Group). Principal Cast (in alphabetical order): Matthew Walters-Bowens, Matt Hooper, Kelley Quinn, Shai Tamary, Anne Veal. Music and Lyrics by Ben Easton and Mark Levy. All Songs Performed by Ensemble and The Academy Blues Project (Jim Bloom, Trevor Brown, Ben Easton, Mark Levy). Score by Ben Easton.
