Antipodes Theatre Co. Presents the Australian premiere of

Ghost Quartet

Music, Lyrics, and Text by DAVE MALLOY
Directed and Designed by BRANDON PAPE
Featuring DAVID BUTLER, MELISSA DAVID, PATRICK SCHNUR, and WILLOW SIZER

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

The brilliantly inventive DAVE MALLOY’s theater songs make you blue like the sky: sad but high…the material coheres on a rich, intuitive level. This is an experiment in mood and evanescence, a chance to get inside the singer-songwriter’s head and savor the superb musicianship
– Time Out New York

Drawing inspiration from murder ballads and The Twilight Zone, GHOST QUARTET elegantly blurs the line between a contemporary concept album and traditional musical theatre. Four musicians gather to drink whisky and share centuries-old stories about love, death, and betrayal, exposing mysterious and dangerous details from their own past along the way. Don’t miss this sleek and sinister song cycle by DAVE MALLOY (creator of the hit Broadway musical Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812).
