BARBER FROM OUTER SPACE is a new musical written by Nicola McEldowney (book) and Rachel Gambiza (music and lyrics). It premiered in May 2014, as a staged reading, at The Planet Connections Theatre Festival in New York City.

When a lonely but fun-loving alien barber from the planet Zee crash-lands in the tiny town of Cavity Hollow, Nebraska, it’s extreme culture shock for everyone involved!  For our barber hero, it’s time to fall in love, galvanize an entire town, and teach his new earthling friends the exciting ways of extraterrestrial hair care. But danger lies ahead in the form of a jealous enemy, a forbidden romance, and the destruction of his home planet… and Earth may well be next. It’s an epic adventure of deep space, impending doom, finding your place, falling in love, and squirrels.
