Glenn tells J.P. what he can expect to see at Man in the Moon

I just got back from watching about 80% of Man in the Moon and all I can say is WOW!

Tonight I saw Walt Disney looking down and smiling, saying, “Creativity and imagination are back”.

Man in the Moon is more than a Glenn Beck Production, it’s bigger than you and me and Glenn. Watching everything come together tonight was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had in my life.

I was sitting next to Raj Nair(Liberty Tree House) and when it all began both our mouths dropped and we just couldn’t take our eyes off of what was happening. As the show went on we both would just look at each other with awe and just shake our heads out of amazement.

I can say with all honesty that this will change lives, this will change your perspective on this country, this will help America to remember where she came from and remember that we are so much more than just a citizen of some country, we are citizens of the greatest country where dreams truly can come true but only if you’re willing to step-up and stand for what is right, and stand for one another.

Producer J.P.: The scope of Man in the Moon is staggering

The past two nights I’ve been able to see about 50 percent of Man In the Moon.

It really didn’t hit me how big this production really is until last night. Seeing the moon rising above the stage, watching the dancers, listening to the amazing soundtrack and hearing the story, really opened my eyes to the importance of this story being told in this massive production.

It’s amazing how many people are helping to produce this show. The best of the best from around the country and the world right here in Utah all willing to help one man who had a story and an idea. A story that needs to be told to America…To wake America up.

The soundtrack is beyond one of the most amazing things I’ve ever heard. When we were in the studio on Monday night listening to the full soundtrack of the show, everyone realized that something important is happening in Salt Lake City this week. The music is more then just brilliant people who wrote the music, it has so much power and emotion to it. It will be something you have never before heard.

So far this has been an amazing experience, I have never been more proud to work for a man who is not afraid to go above and beyond, to step outside of the box that we Americans have put our creativity and imagination in. I have never been more proud to work for a company who is willing to do what no one else will, tell the truth. Be willing to stand for truth when no one else will stand.

You all are in for a treat.

Original concept art for Man in the Moon

When Glenn was first planning Man in the Moon, he envision it being performed at the Grand Canyon. He would tell the story of The Man in the Moon at a giant campfire, with the shadows projected from the fire telling the story of America. The moon is the only element from the original art that is still in the show.
