First You Jump

How do you take the terrifying leap into your own Unknown?

First You Jump” is a surreal and darkly comic musical play. Five very different characters face extraordinary choices that will change their lives irrevocably. Each must commit to a decision without knowing if it's the right one.  It's filled with elements of magical realism, though they explore universal human issues of identity, vulnerability, acceptance, love and death as well as social issues such as civil rights, performance enhancing drugs and terrorism.

Damage Control - A U.S. Senator deals with a colossal skeleton in her closet that won’t stay buried.

Red Algernon - Will a composer trade her marriage - and her life - to write an immortal composition?

Geppetto’s Funeral - A middle-aged and very human Pinocchio who regrets ever meeting the Blue Fairy faces her again.

Growing Feathers - A single girl comes to grips with a bizarre physical transformation that overtakes her whenever she orgasms.

Terminal Velocity - The life of a housewife suspended in the sky above Omaha depends on knowing what’s real and what’s not.

Past productions

Superpowers stem from incredible sacrifices in The Mutant Diaries: Unzipping My Genes- a feisty and frank solo musical from performer/composer Eva Moon. Upon learning she had the BRCA genetic mutation, which spikes the risk of breast cancer to 87% and ovarian cancer to 55%, Moon had to make a life-altering choice: remove her healthy breasts and ovaries or face terrifying odds of cancer. Live music, warmth and generous amounts of humor are all expertly woven in this story of her decision -- and the extraordinarily empowering results of that choice. Now available on DVD!
