PlayBlog   Euan Morton Sings from Sater-Tankian Musical Prometheus Bound
 
The world-premiere musical Prometheus Bound, featuring a score by Tony Award-winning Spring Awakening author Steven Sater and System of a Down rocker Serj Tankian, is tuning up for its debut at the American Repertory Theater in late February.

In anticipation of the political rock musical's arrival, A.R.T. has released a demo track titled "Prometheus, The Titan," performed by Taboo and Sondheim on Sondheim star Euan Morton. Morton was part of the December 2010 workshops of the musical along with Celina Carvajal, Gavin Creel, Michael Cunio, Gabe Ebert, Jo Lampert, Hoon Lee and Christina Sanjous.

At this time, only two-time Tony Award nominee Creel (Hair, Thoroughly Modern Millie) has been announced to appear in the full production of Prometheus Bound, which will run Feb. 25-April 2 at Oberon. The production will reunite Creel with his Tony Award-nominated Hair director Diane Paulus, who will stage the premiere.

According to A.R.T., "An outcry against tyranny, the new rock musical Prometheus Bound illustrates one man's struggle against the brute force of a ruthless dictator… This new musical is inspired by Aeschylus's ancient Greek tragedy about the suffering of Western civilization's first prisoner of conscience."
