Uncharted: Dave Malloy

511 West 54th St.
A rusty old tambourine nailbin of a night, with hurt trombones and mournful accordions, rowdy raccoons and sweet honeybees, silhouette charms and whiskey tenors screaming at the rain. Composer Dave Malloy (Beowulf – A Thousand Years of Baggage, Three Pianos, Clown Bible, 2009 Jonathan Larson Grant winner) and an ensemble of eleven, including members of Banana Bag & Bodice, Three Pianos and The TEAM, work their way through a cacophonous pile of songs spanning four musicals and ten years of never before performed solo work. It’s raucous anti-musical musical theater at its best.
