David Quang Pham (he/him) is a science dramaturg from Wyoming, Michigan. He has gone through an out-of-the-world experience as the second apprentice of Working Title Playwrights. He loves this space and space in general. This passion for astronomy and theatre manifested from trips to space camp and operas as a kid. He plays the modern sackbut. In high school, he wrote his first musical (MATHLAND) for a Calculus project. He has been drafting musical love letters to science ever since. Janelle Lawrence is his musical mentor. As a member of ΣΠΣ, he attained an astrophysics degree at Michigan State University. Since college, David has been working on a particle physics opera. TOUR revolves around subatomic educators who collide and compete in the academic Accelerator. This summer, he is cowriting the book and music of PARALLEL UNIVERSITY for the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. He traverses science communication through the human condition.

ELLIPSES is a brand-new science musical about family, child development, and adulthood. It follows Singularity, their six children, and their quest to undo the Big Bang, after a family member sets it off. When JD strikes down Singularity to run away from home with Gravity (the family dog), their younger siblings are left to fend for themselves in the vastness of the cosmos. The supermassive heart of this coming-of-age story is finding oneself in the nothingness…
