Performance

If you want some great music and some heavenly voices singing the truth about todays culture, this is the CD for you. The drama of this music will take your breath away.

-Ange3414@aol.com quote

If you are in for an excellent musical weepy, this is it! It's also, perhaps, the bravest musical written since 'Hair' or 'Jesus Christ Superstar', which is fitting since quite a bit of the music echoes from those two musicals. It's bravery comes from writing songs which deal with modern problems of modern people. Topics such as drug addiction, aids, poverty, sickness, homosexuality, lesbianism, prostitution, bondage, selling out and even performance art are dealt with directly and unflinchingly. From the perspective of the history of the American musical, this is about as radical as you can get. Nothing is more shocking than the truth and the composer tells it like it is. To counterbalance the tragedy, there is the hope inspired by groups of people banding together to not be beaten down by the horrors of the modern world. I checked out the CD from the SF Public Library about 1/2 year ago and was astounded by the quality of the music, songwriting and character interaction. I saw the musical at the GGTheater in SF this past Sunday and once again was wowed by the absolute power and beauty of the music and the message. If you are going to take a risk on a new musical, live or on cd, this is the one. Buy it and enjoy!
