PASADENA BABALON is the incredible true story of John “Jack” Whiteside Parsons.

Rocket scientist by day, black magic occultist by night, Jack Parsons led a colorful, yet mysterious, existence that brought him in contact with some of the great luminaries of the 30’s and 40’s: Aleister Crowley, Howard Hughes, Ray Bradbury, Theodore von Karman, and Robert Heinlein, to name a few. He was also friends with a young, little-known science fiction writer by the name of L. Ron Hubbard.

Using an eclectic gallery of characters, Pasadena Babalon takes the audience on a bizarre journey through early twentieth century Pasadena; from Jack’s boyhood experimentation with magic, to his untimely death from an accidental explosion at the age of 38.

As co-founder of both the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the Aerojet General Corporation, Jack Parsons should have cemented his reputation in history, yet today very few have ever heard of him.

Pasadena Babalon examines the limitations of genius, the impermanence of success, the expansion of sexual boundaries, and the unintended consequences of applied brilliance—all against the background of a world ruptured by the introduction of new technology.
