Take Me is a world premiere musical and based on a true story by Mark Guarino and Jon Langford (The Mekons and The Waco Brothers) about searching into the vast universe for answers when they might be found inside. When her husband lapses into a coma, Shelly feels hopeless and turns to the sky for a reason to go on. She finds direction from voices she believes are aliens who instruct her to move to Roswell, N.M. and build an amusement park in their honor before awaiting further instruction. She follows their orders and what follows is a comic fantasia involving government conspiracy theories, deadly insect bites and idol worship.
