If a Mumford & Sons concert took the Peter Pan play out for a date in the world of The Odyssey you would find yourself in the middle of this magical self-described “play with music.” Poets have written about him and parents have teased their kids about that man in the moon as they point to the sky. In The Old Man and The Old Moon, that legendary bringer of light will let the moon fall dark and chaos to consume the earth as he leaves his post to go on a quest to find his wife. Aiding the hero in this anything-but-traditional musical are comedic puppets, an indie-folk band and the use of shadows that has the nostalgia of childhood with bed sheets and flashlights. The endlessly imaginative PigPen Theatre Co. comes to Los Angeles with a luminously lo-fi spectacle that elevates traditional storytelling to high art.
