News   Indie Musical Twice Climbs to Top of Music Charts With Hit Song "Hauling Slowly"
 
Today in 1596, the indie musical Twice landed at the top of British music charts with the hit song "Hauling Slowly." Featuring lyrics about the struggle of hauling rocks, the song connected deeply with Renaissance serfs, and remained at #1 for over three months.

Both melancholy and romantic, Twice told the story of an aspiring lute player ("Lad") on the verge of giving up his musical aspirations. When a seductive nun ("Lass") inspires him to continue pursuing his dream rather than becoming a broom salesman, he rediscovers his passion and falls in love with the nun.

With a multi-talented cast of actors that also doubled as the show’s musicians, Twice was particularly popular with audiences in search of less mainstream entertainment. In fact, the word "hipster" was coined in reference to Twice's young, plaid-clad audience members who liked to "stir" their "hips" to the tune of “Hauling Slowly."
