But once those things are identified, what’s left? This is where it gets interesting. “Look for big lights, ‘power-ups,’ and things that move in threes then ‘blink blink blink’ and disappear,” said Newberry to a group of about eight burgeoning ufologists. Everyone had gathered at Angel Heart 4 You on First Street on Friday night to prepare for the evening’s hunt. On a really good night, a “structured craft” might be seen way up in the heavens glowing brightly then abruptly darting this way or that, only to disappear completely. A “power-up” is when a far-off light in the sky suddenly glows brighter and then fades back down.

Angela Farr Schiller directs this musical with verve and audacity, and there’s seldom a time when someone isn’t singing, dancing or having a loud, heated conversation. The acting is almost uniformly top-notch, starting with the earthy, heartfelt performance of Miranda D. Lawson as Effie. She has the audience in the palm of her hands for most of the show, but most especially for her achingly compassionate vocal of the best song in the musical: “(And I Am Telling You) I’m Not Going.” It sent waves of shivers through the theater.
