A mythic, 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 has received concerts and workshops at The Bushwick Starr (via Fresh Ground Pepper), Joe's Pub, and Playwrights Horizons at NYU Tisch.
