Manhattan Theatre Club's Murder Ballad, a new rock musical that launches the company's new Studio at Stage II Harold and Mimi Steinberg New Play Series, began previews Oct. 31 for a run to Dec. 2. John Ellison Conlee, Rebecca Naomi Jones, Karen Olivo and Will Swenson star in the show created by Julia Jordan and Juliana Nash.
Here's how MTC bills the musical: "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 small betrayals that can ultimately undo us."
Julia Jordan is a Jonathan Larson Award winner and two-time Susan Smith Blackburn Prize finalist. Juliana Nash is an indie rock singer/songwriter. Cullman's directing credits include Paul Weitz's Lonely, I'm Not and Adam Bock's A Small Fire.
