”Super awesome and entertaining show!” -Goldstar
"Audience members were rolling in their seats..." -Stage Raw
“Laughs abound...political satire to the max” -Broadway World
Winner: 2017 LA Fringe Festival Encore Award
Trump in Space is Star Trek meets Avenue Q meets Trump, a musical battle of good vs. bad and ideals vs. opportunism. This original musical is an epic space adventure filled with all the sci–fi tropes we love and all the politics we love to hate. Four hundred years in the future, the fallout of the Trump administration has left humans stranded without a planet. Captain Natasha Trump, a direct descendant of President Donald J. Trump, races to find humanity a new planet because the earth blew up! Said Shari Barrett of BroadwayWorld.com, “Laughs abound with each farcical situation based on political satire to the max – with great ensemble harmonies throughout.” Trump in Space proudly occupies a spot on the StageRaw.com Top Ten.
