Flight of the Lawnchair Man

Jerry Gorman is a regular guy from Passaic, New Jersey who just wants to fly. The neighbors think he’s nutty, but his girlfriend Gracie believes in him. Together, Jerry and Gracie try flight school, the “Up With People Space Program,” and anything else they can think of to help Jerry soar into the stratosphere. But they are stymied by bureaucracy, Jerry’s disapproving mother, and deep, dark family secrets.
Jerry soars to 16,000 feet with nothing but a lawnchair and 400 helium balloons. In the end, Jerry has a decision to make: come back down to earth, or fly forever where the air is free. Loosely based on a true story, Flight of the Lawnchair Man is a musical that reminds us that dreams can come true if you believe in yourself.
A JT Premiere! Recommended for ages 12 and older.
