LUDO's Broken Bride is a rock opera expanded from the concept album of the same name by alternative rock band LUDO. Thanks to the addition of songs from across LUDO's entire discography, the storyline has been enhanced from the original EP but its heart remains the same, telling one man's time-traveling journey from the Age of Dinosaurs to the Zombie Apocalypse, all to save his true love's life (and perhaps the whole world!). In a shorter form the piece was presented to a sold-out audience at Ars Nova's ANT Fest 2013. This musical has it all -- pterodactyls, zombies, puppets, and true love!
LUDO's Broken Bride features an original concept, music and lyrics by LUDO, orchestrations by David Levinson, adaptation by Stacey Weingarten, musical direction by Joshua Zecher-Ross, puppets by James Wojtal, projections by Pauline Lu, styling by Bree Perry, lighting design by Andrew Scharwath, and casting by Michael Cassara, CSA. The concert is being produced by Chinese Mother Jewish Daughter LLC, and Shoshana Feinstein.
