“...an unassuming futuristic rock musical, with sweet lessons about the awkwardness of growing up...It contains enough spoofs of the sci-fi genre to keep adults amused, and enough high-spirited music and action for all...The production...brims with charm and wit..." - New York Newsday
Shy young Eleanor (will cast age 18+) has built a fantasy world around the sci-fi comic books she collects. To the distress of her mother, she has learned to avoid the pains of growing up by escaping into fantasy, imagining herself to be an unrecognized superhero. When she is mysteriously thrust into the World of her favorite comic book, Eleanor is drawn into the conflict between good guys, Starmites, guardian angels of Innerspace and the not so good people. She turns out to be the legendary Milady, teen superhero who must lead the Mites on their Quest to save the Galaxy. Standing in her way are a colorful assortment of feme villains including the delightfully flamboyant Diva, Queen of Innerspace and her Banshee warriors - Destiny's Childish sirens with a ravenous hunger for Boy Bands. With the help of hip-hop heartthrob Space Punk, Eleanor learns to own up to the inner power she has always denied, defeating her foes and conquering the evil force of the "Cruelty."
