Rocket Man

Pack light.

Performing at The Crane Theater
Somewhere in the universe is a place where all the roads we never chose converge and Donny Rowan is hoping to find it. He’s placed everything he owns on his front lawn, along with a sign that reads: “Here’s my life. Make an offer.” Free of his possessions and ready to travel light, Donny’s obsessive quest to find what he’s missed will take him to the edge of his universe and back.
