    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.

    A whiskey-fuelled jam session with dreamlike logic and visuals...
    another win for Crow’s Theatre. - CARLY MAGA, THE TORONTO STAR
    A spellbinding and spooky evening of song, perfect for Halloween month... pure bliss. - MOONEY ON THEATRE
    For the most adventurous musical-theatre fare this fall, the place to be is Crow’s Theatre in Toronto’s East End. - THE GLOBE AND MAIL
    Like watching a spectacular sunrise after a night of whiskey - TIME OUT NEW YORK
