Where No Man Has Gone Before - The Unauthorized Star Trek Parody Musical will make its World Premier in Washington DC in June of 2013. This musical parody of the immensely popular sci-fi series written by Clara Hoch and Eva Thorpe and directed by Hoch, is based on the Star Trek episode by the same name.
The World Premier will star Gavin Cole (RENT, Legally Blonde, Falsettos) as Captain James T. Kirk, Elaine Edwards (Cabaret) as Dr. Elisabeth Dehner, and Anthony Logan Cole (Les Miserables, Jekyll and Hyde, RENT) as the villainous Gary Mitchell and features Bandon Boling as Dr. "Bones" McCoy, Marcus Schmidt as Mr. Spock, Michael Hawthorne as Scotty, Erich Hoch as Chekov, Emma Grey O'Brien as Nurse Christine Chapel, and Taylor LaCosta as Uhura. The ensemble includes Binta Barry, Greg Rosenburg, Zoe Hawryluk, Daniel Kirk Lindgren, Emma Eichenberger, Julianna Gonzalez, Stephanie Rathjen, Katie Eichenberger and Justin Janke.
The plot of the musical follows along with the second Star Trek pilot (the original one to air). All is well on the Enterprise under the hand of James T. Kirk (Gavin Cole) as the ship welcomes its new psychiatrist Dr. Elisabeth Dehner (Elaine Edwards). The cocksure Kirk immediately begins a torrid love affair with Dehner. But not everyone on the Enterprise is so happy, the ship's librarian Gary Mitchell (Anthony Logan Cole) vows to kill Kirk and steal Dehner's heart. When things go horribly wrong during a rescue mission and Dehner and Mitchell are blasted with space radiation and get psychic powers. Will they be able retain their humanity? Will Spock be able to overcome his Uncomfortable Bowel Syndrome and find love? Why is Kirk such as dick? All this and more will be answered in Hoch and Thorpe's Pon Farr Fest of a musical!
