Murder Ballad is conceived by Jonathan Larson Award winner and two-time Susan Smith Blackburn Prize finalist Jordan, with book and lyrics by Jordan and music and lyrics by indie rock singer/songwriter Nash. It's directed by Drama Desk Award nominee Trip Cullman (Paul Weitz's Lonely, I'm Not; Adam Bock's A Small Fire).
Here's how the show is billed: "A love triangle gone wrong, Murder Ballad centers on Sara, an Upper West Sider who seems to have it all, but whose downtown past lingers enticingly and dangerously in front of her. This sexy, explosive new musical explores the complications of love, the compromises we make, and the betrayals that can ultimately undo us."
Justin Levine handles music direction, vocal arrangements and orchestrations.
The extended but limited engagement of Murder Ballad plays to Dec. 16 at MTC's Off-Broadway home at New York City Center Stage II. The show is part of The Sudio at Stage II Harold and Mimi Steinberg New Play Series.
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
