Original Concept & Additional Lyrics by Scott Keys


Aviatrix Amelia Earhart, evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson and author Agatha Christie each vanished mysteriously: Agatha disappeared for eleven days; Aimee disappeared for three weeks; and of course Amelia vanished completely. VANISHING POINT, a musical comedy-fantasy, brings these three women together as they solve the mystery of their disappearances from their own lives. The show has a cast of three: the women play not only their central role but also each others’ mothers, husbands, friends, reporters, and so on.

VANISHING POINT has had ten full productions. In 2014, VANISHING POINT played in Madrid, Spain, at Teatro Lara, in a new Spanish translation.

Selections from VANISHING POINT will be presented in concert in New York City at 54Below on Tuesday, November 4th at 9:30 pm. The cast includes FARAH ALVIN as Agatha Christie, KATE SHINDLE as Amelia Earhart, and KATIE THOMPSON as Aimee Semple McPherson. Tickets can be purchased here.

“The concept of the musical is ingenious; the construction of it even more so. The unique approach to the show— having only three women perform multiple side-character roles as well as their core figure— creates a fascinating concept to experience. Hartmann’s music is haunting, starkly unsettling at times, which makes it perfect for the overarching themes of adventure and mystery throughout the show.” -- review of the 2014 Baltimore production.
