  Earthrise at The Kennedy Center


The Kennedy Center
2700 F Street, NW Washington

Fifty years ago this summer, the human race did the seemingly impossible and set foot on the moon. This immersive new play commemorates the 50th anniversary of the lunar landing, capturing this breathtaking feat using projections, original songs and actual NASA footage. The year is 1969, and while the world waits for the launch of Apollo 11, three children of key NASA employees - a mathematician's daughter, an astronaut's son and an engineer's daughter - watch the historic launch from different perspectives. By dreaming a collective dream of landing on the moon together, the kids learn to understand the historic mission, not fear it. Experience the moon landing like never before when Earthrise comes to The Kennedy Center.
