Synopsis of Area 51The Musical
Deep in the depths of space, a monstrous evil has awoken, an evil so powerful its influence can reach beyond the stars. That evil finds a home in Area 51, the world's largest, and most secret, military complex. In a race against time, Rick Adams, head of the base's top secret scientific research facility, must find a way to halt the alien invasion before all of humanity succumbs to the extraterrestrial onslaught.
"Nothing in recent years has felt so fresh and new to me than the concept album of the new musical Area 51... this is exactly the fresh breeze musical theatre needs right now... If you're looking for something fresh and totally different from the mainstream offerings of the West End, then look no further... could be what Cats was twenty years ago - something that simply dares to be completely different and groundbreaking, and could very well become a cult show of Rocky Horror Show-calibre."

"Filled with sly verbal and melodic allusions to popular movie and television standards, Area 51 is a bright and breezy romp that combines classic genre story elements with modern-day alien mythology and a lively rock 'n' roll attitude... Then We Met Like This, the show-stopping tune, with voices soaring over gorgeous strings and keyboards...dynamic, the recording presents a tantalizing taste of the tale's inherent energy and excitement."
