Hereafter Musical - Off-Broadway
"Hereafter Musical" is a musical drama (with some light touches) that explores what happens when a loved one dies from the perspective of both the living AND the dead. Three women have come together one afternoon for a reading at the Middletown, New Jersey home of psychic, Jason Richards. They each have had difficulty coping with the loss and of their loved one and are desperate to make contact.
Unbeknownst to them, the spirits materialize during the reading and we discover that, like the living, they are also having a great deal of difficulty moving on. But the spirits are faced with a dilemma. The only thing keeping them earth bound is their family's need for closure. They discover that if they make contact today, it will ease their family's pain, but they will disappear into the unknown of the Hereafter. We meet each of the spirits through flashback stories that take place on their last day alive. Over the course of the session the spirits get revelations and see a side of their loved ones that they haven't seen before.
And as the living shares their grief, the spirits struggle with their decision as to whether or not they should make contact.
