Monstersongs puts audiences in a synthesized world of graphic
novels, rock musicals, live performance and new technology. Following
the journey of a child who opens a portal into the psyches of often
misunderstood creatures, Monstersongs flips the switch on the monster narrative, inviting audiences to explore the humanity that binds us all.
Designed to showcase a diverse scalable cast, Monstersongs works best as an immersive experience – where audiences journey through the worlds of each monster, hearing from their point of view. Different artwork and song styles support each monster – from Medusa belting out hard rock, to a bluegrass-flavored Troll under the bridge. Scary, silly and heartfelt, Monstersongs is unlike anything you’ve experienced before.
Written by Rob Rokicki, the composer of the critically acclaimed Drama Desk and Lortel-nominated The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical (book by Joe Tracz), and developed in conjunction with award-winning illustrator David O’Neill, Monstersongs can be done in a full immersive site-specific environment, on a mainstage, or as a concert in a black box or smaller space. The show has a beautiful graphic novel and projections of the artwork to enhance the audience’s experience.
