BWW TV: Sheik and Jarrow's WHISPER HOUSE at The Old Globe


We've got the first video footage from the World Premiere of Duncan Sheik and Kyle Jarrow's Whisper House. Emmy Award winner Mare Winningham headlines the new musical, Sheik's follow-up to his Tony and Grammy Award-winning Broadway sensation, Spring Awakening. Peter Askin helms the show, with music and lyrics by Sheik and book and lyrics by Jarrow. The musical director is Jason Hart and the dance director is Wesley Fata. Whisper House will run in the Old Globe Theatre until Feb. 21. Tickets to Whisper House can be purchased online at, by phone at (619) 23-GLOBE or by visiting the Box Office.

Set in 1942 at the height of World War II, Whisper House is the story of an 11-year-old boy, Christopher, who lives with his Aunt Lilly in a haunted New England lighthouse following the death of his father. All of the songs in the musical are performed by the ghosts, played by David Poe and Holly Brook, and embody the boy's subconscious thoughts and fears. When Christopher begins to hear strange music seeping through the walls, is his imagination getting the best of him, or is he receiving warnings of the very real dangers that lie ahead? Whisper House is a touching and beautiful story about how we should embrace, rather than fear, the unknown.
