The Last Firefly
It begins with light, a sliver, a flash, then comes a sound, a pulse, a beat, a crash like a giant hammer smashing through the sky. Thus, the story of Boom, the son of Thunder, begins as he sets out on an epic search for his father, ultimately discovering his true self and the strength within him that always existed. This mythical adventure will transport you and your child on a fantastic journey where the littlest things can make all the difference in the world.

“In Firefly Iizuka artfully and elegantly mashes up Japanese folk tales and fables into a play that manages to be simultaneously a fairy tale and contemporary.” -Star Tribune
