Danny Mefford To Direct The First Public Reading Of Erin McKeown's New Musical TERRARIUM BEHAVIOUR
Join Bespoke Plays at The Pico (10508 Pico Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90064) on February 10 at 2pm and February 12 at 8pm for an inventive new musical in progress from the mind of musician, writer, and producer Erin McKeown (MISS YOU LIKE HELL, La Jolla Playhouse & The Public Theater). Featuring original songs in the style of the Great American Songbook, TERRARIUM BEHAVIOUR is art for our current moment. Danny Mefford (Broadway's FUN HOME & DEAR EVAN HANSEN) directs a cast which includes: Bitch, Robert Rodriguez, Andy Alseri, MJ Brown and Brian Hostenske, with Music Direction by Tim Hanson and Drums & Percussion by Mona Tavakoli.
In TERRARIUM BEHAVIOUR, three co-workers have been thriving in a terrarium for eons when a new hire suddenly appears, setting off a cascade of events that re-order a harmonious workplace dynamic with devastating results. Power, gender, and ecology do battle in the humble little jar we know as a terrarium.
