Let's Make a Sandwich
An experimental production featuring two new operas
With music and libretti by Victoria Cheah and Anthony R. Green
Boston Playwrights' Theatre, Boston, MA
Let's Make A Sandwich is back and re-imagined from the original back in 2014! The experimental concept pairs two new one-act operas inspired by the same 1950's era corporate video and presents them under two different directors with vastly different scenic designs, but all with the same cast! This season composers Anthony R. Green and Victoria Cheah and directors Eve Summer and Bruno Baker pair up to explore the blurred line defining where the composer's work ends and the creative team's begins!
