Las Vegas is destroyed again...this time on an off-Broadway New York stage."Mission Drift" is a two hour experimental musical created by a New York theatre collective known as The Theater of the Emerging American Moment or The Team. 

The musical Intertwines the real story of two teenage pioneers in New Amsterdam with the creation and destruction of contemporary Las Vegas. There's the atom bomb, mystic gods and more. Mission Drift attempts to get at the tension between creation and violence:  the love and ambivalence of Americans toward constant expansionism and growth.
