Music by Nick Choo • Book by Scott McArdle • Lyrics by Scott McArdle & Nick Choo
For the past two years, Captain Astonishing has been protecting Destiny City’s skies from the menacing figure known as The Destroyer, and, while the city is still standing, some people have had enough. Polly, an ordinary barista, decides to stand against the super-beings.
Together with a tough-as-nails ex-cop, two loveable but excitable nerds, and a top government scientist, she puts into motion a course of events that catch the attention of the higher-ups—and we’re talking higher-than-skyscrapers high.
Extra Ordinary People is the story of ordinary people standing up against injustice, and doing it with song and dance!
