After a sudden loss shatters his world apart, twenty-one year old Christopher Crow travels back to the imaginary island of his childhood in hopes of finding answers that will bring the pieces back together. King of Pangaea explores the rich, complicated, and at times beautiful world of loss, examining what it means to become king or queen of one’s own heart.
Martin Storrow – Book & Lyrics & Music
Martin Storrow believes that creativity lives at the heart of everything. A prolific artist and songwriter based in Los Angeles, Martin has released six records and a collection of poems, and has played more than a thousand concerts across the US and in Africa, Australia, and the Middle-East. His original music has been featured in film and television shows on NBC, Starz, and Netflix. King of Pangaea is Martin’s first musical, and was inspired by his lived experience.
During the past four years, King of Pangaea has primarily been developed through a series of informal readings and work sessions in Los Angeles, with the help of a growing community of artists and friends. Milestones include a staged reading at the Whitefire Theater as part of the “Music Stand Series” (2021) and showcases at Musi-Cal in Hollywood (FNAM) and A Little New Music (ASCAP-sponsored). To date, this show has largely existed outside of the traditional New York development pipeline. The creators are grateful for the opportunity to grow their community further and connect with new partners who can help us expand their reach.
