World Premiere Rock Opera to Take the Stage at Patchwork Theatre
For one weekend only, June 1st through the 4th the Patchwork Theatre of Niagara will be closing their third theatrical season with a world premiere Rock Opera based on the 2005 concept album Trainwreck by Canadian band Boys Night Out.
The album follows a thrilling psychological story of a man's descent into madness after a tragic loss told through emotional rock music. The Patchwork Theatre script, adapted to the stage by Billy Horn and directed by Rosemarie Lorenti, expands the story and cast of characters to translate the original songs to the stage - similar to adaptations of other albums such as Broadway hits like American Idiot and Tommy.
The production features every song from the album, including the singles Composing, Relapsing and Medicating, the latter which had a popular music video. The show is performed almost entirely through music with songs ranging from pop-punk sing alongs to epic and emotional ballads. A cast of seven portray characters ranging from psychiatric patients to legal teams and feature some of the best hidden talent in Niagara Falls and Western New York.
With ticket reservations confirmed for guests coming to Niagara Falls for the performance from as far as Southern Ontario, Detroit, Delaware and Florida, the rabid fanbase of Boys Night Out has reacted with overwhelming praise on social media. One of the four performances has already sold out as a result.
Trainwreck performances are scheduled for June 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th at 8pm at the Patchwork Theatre of Niagara located at 1201 Pine Avenue, Suite 104, Niagara Falls NY 14301. Trainwreck is recommended for mature audiences.
