Caroline Cromelin, Eric Nightengale, Monica Read, Kimberly Reiss, Troy W. Taber and Toby Wherry Comedy Characters: 2 male, 3 female Unit set. This high altitude comedy of errors based on the true story of Larry Walters, a man dedicated to getting the best view, was developed through improvisation at the78th Street Theatre Lab. Larry, with the help of fifty surplus weather balloons, launched himself to 1,600 feet in an aluminum lawn chair and lived to tell about it. After being spotted by passing aircraft, he descended by shooting several of the balloons with a pellet gun, got entangled in power lines and was arrested by the FAA for violating commercial airspace in an unauthorized vehicle. Mr. Walters dropped out of sight after a brief time in the spotlight including an appearance on the David Letterman show, but not before securing his place as a cult hero for weird daredevils everywhere. A radio version aired on the BBC. Winner of the Edinburgh Festival's Best of the Fringe.
