Murder Ballad, which played an acclaimed Off-Broadway run during the 2012-13 season, was conceived by Julia Jordan with book and lyrics by Jordan and music and lyrics by indie rock singer/songwriter Juliana Nash.
The Studio staging, which will be helmed by artistic director David Muse, will take a page from the Off-Broadway run, setting the story within an immersive bar environment. Tony-winning scenic designer Brian MacDevitt has been enlisted to create the set and lighting.
Here's how the musical is billed: "Sara's life is perfect—Upper West Side husband, daughter, and life—until her irresistible past blows back into her life in the form of an old flame, a dangerous passion, and a love triangle headed for ignition."
Murder Ballad will run through May 10.
