Why See Ghost Quartet?
Dave Malloy's Surreal Ghost Quartet
Ghost Quartet is a haunting tale about love and death, washed down with a glass of whiskey. Described as a warped fairy tale, the structure draws on the songcycle by a fictional band called Ghost Quartet, composed by Natasha, Pierre & The great Comet 1912 composer Dave Malloy, and is a surreal, yet poignant examination of what it means to be human.
The show interweaves four different stories, one is a tale about two sisters - a treehouse astronomer and a lazy, evil bear, one draws on Edgar Allan Poe's The Fall of The House Usher, one brings together the fabled Scheherazade and the ghost of Thelonius Monk and the last follows a subway murder in the present day. Jazz, doo-wop and drinking songs punctuates these abstract narratives, making for eclectic and beautiful viewing.
Opening night: 19 January 2018
