The Musical Box

The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is proud to present THE MUSICAL BOX performing The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. The Musical Box willperform at the Byham Theater on Tuesday, November 22, 2011, at 8:00 p.m. This concert is a part of the 2011-2012 Cohen & Grigsby Trust Presents series.

Canadian band, THE MUSICAL BOX, founded in 1993, is the only band in the world to obtain from Peter Gabriel and Genesis the performing rights and access to archives, audio tracks and original slideshow for The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. THE MUSICAL BOX first re-staged in meticulous detail the original Genesis concert (1974) in October, 2000 at the Spectrum in Montreal and again in early 2006 in Europe. The band's name THE MUSICAL BOX originated from the Genesis song of same title from the 1971 album Nursery Cryme.

The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway (originally released as a double-concept album, 1974)is based on a story by Peter Gabriel, including iconic titles such as "Fly on A Windshield," "In The Cage," and "Carpet Crawlers." Lamb tells the story of a New York punk called Rael and his odyssey into the underworld. The cast performs in outrageous costumes with various stage props. In addition, The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway features eye catching visual effects and pyrotechnics as well as a 1000 projection slide show. The concert was first performed live on tour by Genesis in 1974 and is considered one of the first Rock Operas. Genesis' original American/European tour of Lamb ended after six months and at that time Peter Gabriel left the group to purse his own career.
