This should be cool:
PEACE – a new musical created by Taylor Mac and Rachel Chavkin
based on Aristophanes’ Peace.
War has destroyed the land and a 75 yr. man and his two 12 yr. old daughters are counting on their last chance of escape: a DUNG BEETLE (fed only pure, organic fecal seed) that will fly them to heaven to ask the gods for help.
Join us for this new – and deeply bizarre – musical romp through Aristophanes’crap…poop…sh*t…FECES FILLED WORLD.
With new songs by Taylor Mac, arranged by Stephanie Johnstone
Featuring John Lavelle as HERMES, Kari Nicole Washington and Nila K Leigh as HONEST and GOODNESS, Taylor Mac as their elderly father TRY-US & Christopher Illing as the DUNG BEETLE
with ukulele and guitar, glockenspiel, some gong and washboard, and a little musical saw…
