What happens when the Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies collide? An instantaneous conflagration that nothing can survive? Not when you can sneak through a black hole.

When the Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies collide, Mickey Wittgen and Jansky Stein step forward to help guide the planet of Googol in the new Milkomeda Galaxy. Helping — or hindering — their efforts are the members of the 5G. Alas, there are wrinkles in any matrix.

Among the displaced is former Sandia National Laboratories employee Simon Derryberry, who still harbors guilt for having been slow to announce an asteroid hurtling toward former Earth. Could circumstances in the New New World lead — or mislead — him to become a hero? Perhaps with a little help from his neighbor, Cregz Liszt, and Andromeway receptionist Trending Bluffdale.

Meanwhile, one would be shortsighted to overlook the influence of Googol’s poet laureate, Algore Rhythms, who seems to be in tune with — and, thus, find humor in — the machinations that comprise the world as we don’t know it.

With all these forces in play, one could expect an ultimate showdown when Googolings perceive a betrayal of their trust in Wittgen and Stein. There being no OK Corral on Googol, one could further expect the ultimate showdown to take place in a courtroom. But how will Spencer Darro defend the duo in absentia? Just like the old New World, the New New World revolves around “isms,” theories, math, and music.

Oh, and let’s not forget the monkeys.

Googol, the Musical is the sequel to Earth, the Musical.
