Welcome to the home page of Noah and the Gremlins, a new Musical by Bill Barnett &
project has two primary venues and two primary themes.
the apartment of Noah Raymond, a successful young science fantasy writer with an
incurable writer’s block. The
other is the keyboard of Noah’s computer, which has been visited by a
friendly but colorfully cantankerous group of gremlins who plan to ghostwrite stories for
Noah by leaping about on the keyboard.
two overreaching themes, both of which are extremely relevant to today's
difficult times. One theme explores the theory that a god/deity will not survive
if his or her believers lose faith. Without stories for humans about gremlins, the humans may
cease to believe in gremlins, and the gremlins may cease to exist. If the gremlins cease to exist, there will be no gremlins to believe in
humans, and the humans may cease to exist.
The other theme is
more pragmatic and focuses on the idea that your fate is up to you, and attempting to blame
it all on gremlins can get you into a heap of trouble.
