This off-beat musical by the composer of Little Shop of Horrors and the Disney films Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, and The Little Mermaid is two one-act musicals of speculative fiction. The first, The Girl Who Was Plugged In, is about a homeless bag-lady whose soul is transplanted into the body of a gorgeous female android by a company which manufactures celebrities. The second, Her Pilgrim Soul, is about a scientist who researches holographic imaging. One day a mysterious "living" holograph, apparently a woman long dead, appears and changes his life forever.
"Her Pilgrim Soul is a melodious musical about buried memory and reincarnation." - The New York Times
"Her Pilgrim Soul is so cunningly written and musicalized with such emotional sincerity, I dare any proponent of new age philosophy to resist it." - USA Today
First premiered at the WPA Theatre in New York City on June 14, 1992.
