When young Ben (Ethan Slater) and his father Henry (Norbert Leo Butz) move to a geological research outpost in rural Alaska, the only other person for hundreds of miles is a fellow researcher named Kath (Lilli Cooper). 

Ben uses his imagination to cope with his new surroundings, but as he learns more about the circumstances that brought him into isolation, the line between lie and reality begins to blur. 

It’s a sweeping, handmade fable about the world we’re given, and the one we make for ourselves.

Classic Stage Company is thrilled to present a one-night-only concert presentation of Edge of the World, a new musical with a book, music, and lyrics by Tony Award nominee Ethan Slater (CSC’s Assassins) and Nick Blaemire (Space Dogs). Edge of the World will be held at CSC’s Lynn F. Angelson Theater on Tuesday July 16 at 7pm. 

Edge of the World launches CSC’s Old Friends, New Classics series, which offers company-affiliated artists an opportunity to present their latest material. Old Friends, New Classics is generously supported by Matt Benjamin and Yeeta Yeger.

The cast of Edge of the World will include Ethan Slater as Ben, Norbert Leo Butz (My Fair Lady) as Henry, and Lilli Cooper (POTUS: Or, Behind Every Great Dumbass Are Seven Women Trying to Keep Him Alive) as Kath. They previously appeared on the concept album of Edge of the World produced by Broadway Records and will reprise their roles for this performance.
