Can computers write hit musicals? At this London theater, we'll soon find out

Katherine Noyes | Dec. 2, 2015
'Beyond the Fence' promises to be the world's first (mostly) machine-generated musical show.

Set in September 1982, Beyond the Fence tells the story of a mother and daughter living together at the Greenham Common peace camp that was established in 1981 in Berkshire, England, to protest nuclear weapons. The show is scheduled to run from Feb. 22 through March 5, 2016.

"Both the musical and the documentaries should stimulate discussion around ideas of computer and human creativity, our relationship with technology, and our ideas about what makes a successful work of art," Gale said. "All exciting ideas, and hopefully a great opportunity to entertain, educate and inspire people into finding out more."
