"One of those rare experiences that will stay with you long after you've seen the show"

OFF THE MAP
In 1990, a young man named Christopher McCandless set out on a journey, just months after graduating from Emory University. He donated his trust fund to Oxfam, abandoned his car and belongings, and began a cross-country odyssey that would ultimately lead him to Alaska. When he ventures into the Alaskan bush, he entertains no illusions that he is trekking into the land of milk and honey; peril and adversity are exactly what he is seeking and what he finds.
Integrating multimedia elements from his own photographs, journal entries and letters, this new folk-rock musical pays tribute to McCandless’ complicated but ultimately transcendent story. His admirable quest for truth, understanding and purpose in life speaks to the restless spirit in everyone.
