NOTES FROM THE BASEMENT, A New Musical By Kate Eberstadt


NOTES FROM THE BASEMENT, A New Musical By Kate Eberstadt



Directed by Molly Rose Heller

Produced by Emily Hawkins & Allison Houser

Workshop Presentations:
February 23 & 24 at 7:30PM

After spending a year working as a music teacher in an emergency refugee camp in Berlin, Jen now lives in her parents' basement - stuck. She is haunted by her memories and refuses to move forward with her life in America. Combining choral music, German house/techno, and Middle Eastern music, Notes from the Basement follows this diverse intergenerational and international cast on a journey of loss and forgiveness, taking a hard look at the American hero complex, "voluntourism," and finding humanity in seemingly inhuman circumstances.
