Ghost Quartet

Music, Lyrics, and Text by DAVE MALLOY (creator of the hit Broadway musical Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812)

A musical to die for…

Rapturous…this happily haunted song cycle uses languages as varied as gospel, folk ballads, honky-tonk anthems of heartbreak, electropop, doo-wop and jazz à la Thelonious Monk…Ghost Quartet slyly addresses the questions of why we want to believe in ghosts and feel the need to keep talking about them. And I promise you, you will believe by the evening’s end.” –The New York Times

A camera breaks and four friends drink whiskey as they share four interwoven narratives spanning seven centuries: a warped fairy tale about two sisters, a treehouse astronomer and a lazy evil bear; a retelling of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Fall of the House of Usher; a purgatorial intermezzo about Scheherazade and the ghost of Thelonious Monk; and a contemporary fable about a subway murder.

Inspired by source material as diverse as Arabian Nights and the television series The Twilight Zone, this modern song cycle features four actor-musicians and delivers thrills unlike anything you’re likely to have seen before.

Directed and Designed by Brandon Pape (Artistic Director, Antipodes Theatre Company)
Musical Direction by David Butler (Green Room Award Nominee, Falsettos)
Musical Staging by Madison Lee (Sydney Theatre Award Nominee, The Wild Party)
