BWW Review: Dave Malloy's GHOST QUARTET with Black Button Eyes Productions at Stage 773 BWW Review: Dave Malloy's GHOST QUARTET with Black Button Eyes Productions at Stage 773
by Emily McClanathan - Jul 22, 2019

Dave Malloy's staged song cycle GHOST QUARTET is a madcap romp through seven centuries of mythology, folk tales, gothic horror stories, murder ballads, and more. Described in the lyrics as a 'circular story,' the nonlinear plot follows four friends through interweaving stories that include two sisters in a murderous love triangle, a modern-day subway platform homicide, and retellings of Arabian Nights and Edgar Allen Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher. Malloy's musical influences are as eclectic as his literary sources, and fans will recognize many of the styles present in his best-known work, the Tony Award-winning NATASHA, PIERRE & THE GREAT COMET OF 1812.   (more...)
