A CONCORD THEATRICALS
Full-Length Musical, Dramatic Comedy
In this chamber musical version of Sarah Ruhl's
Melancholy Play, Tilly’s melancholy is of an exquisite
quality. She turns her melancholy into a sexy thing, and every
stranger she meets falls in love with her.
in addition to Matthew, the pianist, there is ideally a string quartet.
“A classy show... with a sparse elegance.” – Chicago Tribune
“Could turn out to be quite a central pillar of the Ruhl canon… an extensive score from (Todd) Almond that, formatively at least, puts you in mind of some Stephen Sondheim chamber musical like Passion, or maybe something by William Finn… the addition of music feels very organic to the work... you'd have no idea that was not the plan all along. The music adds to the considerable sensuality, and the notable wit, of the piece. This is a classy show [at Piven], with a sparse elegance.” - Chicago Tribune
