Precipice: What Took Us Over The Edge, a musical theater song cycle, explores the significant human moments of revelation and change. As we stand on the edge of a proverbial cliff – uncertain whether to retreat or take a step forward into the abyss – we are welcomed by the memories, good and bad, that brought us to the brink. This powerful new work examines the exhilaration and the fear that comes as we stumble upon our tipping points and allow each of us to see ourselves from the ether standing beyond the precipice.


With an all-star cast of performers from across the United States, we bring you an exploration into human lives. The Footlighters, Inc. is proud to premiere Precipice: What Took Us Over The Edge, a year in the making, by the emerging musical theater writing team of Rigsby and Nassida.

After the final live broadcast performance, a video recording of the program will be available on our YouTube channel for your enjoyment at a later date. 


The is no cost to view the performances for this production. However, due to COVID-19, Footlighters is not able to bring you the exceptional in-person live entertainment that we have been privileged to since 1963.
