In Context: A Billion Nights on Earth

When a treasured object goes missing, real-life father and son actors (Michael and Winslow Fegley) must rely on their own creativity, and each other, to survive a world of wild landscapes—and still make it back home. Context is everything, so get even closer to A Billion Nights on Earth with this curated selection of related articles and videos.

Fringe: Thaddeus Phillips creates his first children's show with 'A Billion Nights on Earth' (The Inquirer)
“It’s so exciting how we are able to make the stage transform before your eyes from an airport to a cave or from land to the sea,” said Phillips.

  1. Very good, but a quick fix to make it better; paste a photo of the father's face inside the floating space-suit.

  2. Excruciatingly dull, unimaginative, and uninspired. It lacked both rigor and finesse, and the pacing was absolutely deadly. Honestly surprised that BAM would book something so amateurish under the guise of "children's theater" and then charge so much money for it.

  3. Amateurish. I am surprised that BAM Next Wave accepted this level of theater as part of its subscription choices. The puppetry and stagecraft were on the level of a second rate children's performance. The three stage hands worked earnestly, but it was all so obvious and labored. A story of a weary architect who had lost his creativity and his imaginative son who helped him rediscover it could have been told so much better.
