About the Theatre

7000 Gypsies Productions was established with the sole purpose of adaptating, publishing and producing the science fiction musical based on the classic rock album Blows Against the Empire by Jefferson Starship. In addition, the company is formed to license and/or sell merchandise related to the production, including film, television, audio, digital media recordings, and clothing products.

The production company takes its name from the lyrics of the song “Hijack,” in which

7000 Gypsies Productions is currently developing the musical Starship.

Starship is the realization of Paul Kantner’s long-standing dream to bring to life his 1970 masterwork composition, Blows Against the Empire. The original music will be used in its entirety and performed in the orchestra pit by a rock band. In addition, a number of other Jefferson Airplane and Jefferson Starship songs will be incorporated into the stage play, including "White Rabbit," "Somebody to Love," “Crown of Creation”, “Volunteers”, “Caroline” and the 1999 release “Shadowlands”.

The production will feature fully realized settings for a downtown street, an urban park, a magical tattoo parlor, the New Mexico desert where the hijacking occurs, and, the interior of the starship. Projections and computer animations will simulate the lift off and hyperdrive effects of  Jerry Garcia’s guitar riffs, and the audience will thrill to extraordinary theatrical effects.

The show is currently in development, with a series of readings and an out-of-town workshop production conducted prior to the show’s premiere on Broadway.
