ABOUT THE SHOW 

Two enamored biologists board a plane from Houston to London, sealing their fates for an outrageously dramatic 10 hours. A suitcase goes missing and an investigation begins, bringing up all kinds of baggage — both emotional and physical — proving to be a test for the entire roster of eclectic passengers who get dragged right into the middle of it all. Written, produced, and performed by the First-Year Class of 2022, Cruising Altitude, a high-stakes musical comedy set 35,000 feet in the air, tackles the issues of losing yourself in relationships, living in the moment, and pursuing passions at all costs, all without resisting the urge to poke fun at airplanes, the dentist’s office of transportation.
