Be Careful What You Wish For

Be Careful What You Wish For is an original piece that originally streamed as Yes! And..’s 2021 Winter Sort of Thing, airing again for one night only as part of Philly Theatre Week! In this multi-medium musical movie, a mythical creator, Elah, is frustrated with the fact that her creations on earth are not quite as worshippy as she had expected. A trickster coyote offers to travel to earth and steal the fire from their bellies, which makes them dull and complacent--but at least they complain a lot less. But two human siblings, Prometheus and Abel, think there might be something missing. When they set out on a perilous voyage to try and find what they lack, they encounter mythical animals, divine beings, and a new friend, Pandora, who, mysteriously, has a locked door in her chest. The trio finds that in order to bring depth and color back to the humans of earth, they have to push the boundaries of their own reality, and maybe even go head to head with the great creator herself.
