The everyday folks in Ethan Lipton's sci-fi show --- How would your pets feel if you pulled up stakes and moved them to a new town? How would they feel if you moved them to a new planet?

Why Liesl Tommy is the ideal director for Kid Victory --- Eclectic isn't a strong enough word to describe Liesl Tommy's directorial resume.
