A mythic, sexy, soulful, vocally pyrotechnic adaptation of Antigone, this electric new musical follows four young siblings as they try to fix the broken city of Thebes. The music, a soulful fusion of R&B, gospel, and musical theatre exquisitely sews together quick humor with alarming tragedy. Appealing to lovers of Greek drama and good music alike, Pyre Cantata is a fiery new twist on a centuries-old myth.
Pyre Cantata was most recently performed at HERE Arts Center in September, 2014. It has received developmental concerts and workshops at The Bushwick Starr (via Fresh Ground Pepper), Joe's Pub, and Playwrights Horizons at NYU Tisch.
