When can the ordinary become extraordinary and the mundane monumental? "Epic stories need epic forms," says Nature Theater of Oklahoma, making their triumphant homecoming with this bold, exuberant 11-hour celebration of the most epic story of all: life. Life and Times: Episodes 1-4 charts one person's account of their own life from earliest memory through adolescence with music, movement and mystery. It's about you, too!
The four episodes of Life and Times being presented can be seen in installments or together as a "marathon." Life and Times will run from January 16th to February 2nd.
