In BOOP! The Betty Boop Musical, Betty's dream of an ordinary day off from the super-celebrity in her black-and-white world leads to an extraordinary adventure of color, music, and love in New York City — one that reminds her and the world, “You are capable of amazing things.”

Rosenberg with lighting design, Gareth Owen with sound design, Finn Ross with projection design, Sabana Majeed with hair & wig design, Michael Clifton with makeup design, Skyler Fox with illusions design, The Huber Marionette with marionette design, and Daryl Waters with musical supervision and arrangements.
