    CANADIAN PREMIERE

    A haunted song cycle about love, death and whiskey.
     
    A camera breaks and four friends drink, in interwoven narratives spanning seven centuries: a warped fairy tale about two sisters, a treehouse astronomer and a lazy evil bear; a retelling of Poe’s The Fall of the House of Usher; a purgatorial intermezzo about Scheherazade; and a contemporary fable about a subway murder.
     
    Murder ballads, doo-wop, jazz noise, and raucous campfire drinking songs collide in the Canadian premiere of this surreal chamber musical from Dave Malloy, composer of Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812.
