Sagan's Contact as a Musical

I'm intrigued. Carl Sagan's Contact (the Musical) will be playing at Seattle's Centerstage Theater from September 25-October 18th. Here is the synopsis (tip from badastronomy):
Ellie Arroway, the director of "Project Argus" is in search of extraterrestrial intelligence. After encountering the first confirmed communication from extraterrestrial beings, what she discovers is more dramatic and unexpected than anyone could ever have predicted. A thrilling new musical with a score by European Composer of the Year, Peter Sipos, Lyrics by Amy Engelhardt. Adapted by Centerstage Artistic Director, Alan Bryce.
I'm withholding judgment. But it seems that the lyricist and composer worked with Ann Druyan on this. I guess, I'll have to go if it shows up somewhere in the New England area. And if you are looking for the movie website, you can find it here.
