The Blue-Sky Boys
How did Buck Rogers, Galileo and the Red Baron help NASA land a man on the moon?
The Blue-Sky Boys is an exhilarating romp through the creative minds of the maverick engineers who stopped at nothing to get a man to the moon! A comedy/drama about the intersection of creativity and science, The Blue-Sky Boys is a play in two acts with an all-male cast.
Commissioned by the EST/Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Science and Technology Project. Winner of the Galileo Prize.
“Houston, we have a hit. Who knew that a play about President Kennedy’s promise to land a man on the moon could be so entertaining, humorous and, to put it simply, magnificent?” —Broadway World
“Overflowing with playfulness and humor.” —Albany Times Union
“One of the funniest and best plays I’ve seen in a long, long time.” —DidYouWeekend.com
“A blessed reminder of a time when our country — though, then as now, riven by divide — still could be unified in hope and purpose.” —Albany Times Union
“It’s like Bill Nye the Science Guy on L.S.D. It’s a lot of fun and you actually may learn something!” —Aisle Say
“A whimsical mash-up of science and history…with broad appeal.” —Albany Gazette
“By turns funny, brainy and magical, this space-race play was intergalactically rewarding. Brevoort’s approach, to put us into the room with the engineers who made it happen, gets its lift and originality from dramaturgical creativity rather than historical fact.” Critics Pick, Best of 2016! —Albany Times Union
