Dear Brutus - Studio 54 @ Shetler Studios
Through June 23, 2019 - New York

Seeped in the climate of despondency and decadence following the First World War, missed opportunities are seized by a group of wastrels and aristocrats in the form of languorous, directionless celebration, meant to combat the pervasive melancholy of a dubious future and the horrors of battle. Dear Brutus is set in a phantom time of splendid decay, diffident exuberance, and newfound introspection. It finds our group haunted by roads not taken and lives not lived. The play by J.M. Barrie is an adult companion piece to his Peter Pan and provides our characters the magical do-over they yearn for. Just like that, thanks to a magic wood, lives are altered; fate reversed. But alas, the grass isn’t always greener.

Censored and labeled a pervert for standing up to the state, a young Aristophanes passes his nights in a haze of booze and sex, spitting into the face of tomorrow with the courage of the damned. When the unlikeliest of heroes emerges, can a guilty, drunken soul become Orpheus and sing life back into the ashes? An edgy supernatural love story costumed in the present but taking place in Ancient Athens’ hedonistic height, The Comedian’s Tragedy is a rollercoaster of violence, love, revenge, low comedy and high ideas.

With $1.1 million in its pockets, this musical is creating a huge buzz that is drawing ardent fans across the board.
