Ghost Quartet in Austin

Submit Updates Images | Videos | Cast | Creative Team | | Edit

Ghost Quartet is a happily haunted musical about love, death, and whisky. We listen in as four friends drink and spin yarns about two fairy tale sisters, a tree house astronomer and a lazy evil bear, a subway tragedy and the ghost of Thelonious Monk. As the evening winds on and glasses empty, we realize the narrative threads are interweaving into a centuries-long tale of encounters with the otherworldly. Ghost Quartet seductively pulls at our desire to believe in ghosts and subtly asks us why these stories continue to endure and multiply in the human imagination.Composer Dave Malloy, Tony-nominated createor of the Broadway hit Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812", draws inspiration from a number of spooky stories - Snow White and Rose Red, Edgar Allan Poe's "Fall of the House of Usher", Arabian Nights and others - as well as a variety of musical styles, including gospel, folk ballads, honky-tonk anthems of heartbreak, electropop, doo-wop and jazz.
