An army of cats forces young Fievel Mousekewitz and his family to escape from Russia by boat. When a storm at sea separates them, Fievel arrives alone in the vast city of New York. In this riveting new musical based on the beloved animated film, the steadfastly optimistic Fievel makes his way as a new immigrant, encountering friends and foes (including a few scene-stealing cockroaches!). Despite everything stacked against him, Fievel clings to his dreams of a better life and reuniting with his family. Are they Somewhere Out There?

“This is my first work made with a Y.A. audience at least partly in mind. But I’m not sure I’d say it’s “primarily” for children so much as “equally” for children—if only because the people who grew up loving the film are now my age, and will no doubt be excited to see it again in this new form. Also, the best material “for children” is always also smart, or funny, or deep enough to appeal to adults as well, and that’s the bar we’ve aimed for here.”
