You, Me and Astrology
What about your star sign makes you YOU? And me, ME? And another Capricorn, SIMILAR to you. But different. Because of their moon in Scorpio ... Whether you know a lot about astrology, or nothing at all... you'll definitely know someone you see in this show.
Almost one-year in the making, the most extensive look into the twelve astrological star signs ever commissioned by the BBC (...if they were to commission this) and the first ever to be presented live on a stage. Join aquarian, Nikki Hartung, as she journeys into the chaos of the stars to find out what about YOUR star sign makes you, YOU? And another Capricorn, similar to you. But different. Because of their moon in Scorpio... whether you know a lot about astrology, or nothing at all... you'll definitely know someone you see in this show. The Cosmos and Planet Earth are interesting, but WE are more interesting.
"This show does a great job of relating to us [the audience]. Everyone has a sign, dates another sign or is friends with a different sign, so no matter what you're going to leave pointing to who you came with (or yourself in my case) saying, 'that's so you'." - Philly Fringe Audience Member
