Before it took over a Greenpoint church in 2017, Dave Malloy's Rasputin musical Beardo made its world premiere in 2011 with the Shotgun Players at Berkeley Theatre.

Described as a musical about "royalty, peasantry, sex, dirt, grandeur, and hemophilia" the rock musical takes a closer look at the infamous Rasputin, a mystic with an insatiable sex drive who became friends with the Russian Tsar and his wife and was ultimately assassinated.
