Tickets to the exciting new musical, The Anthem!
The Anthem is a rollicking sci-fi musical about a revolt of the young against an evil state lovingly inspired by the classic novella “Anthem.” Hunger Games meets Ayn Rand in a world where individuality is illegal. Prometheus abandons everything to confront the State — controlled by the overlord of evil efficiency, Tiberius. With a forbidden copy of Ayn’s Rand’s ancient tome in hand, can Prometheus overthrow the system?
