New Works Now 5.0
Libretto by Rebekah Greer Melocik
Music by Jacob Yandura
Story by Rebekah Greer Melocik and Victor Lesniewski
Directed by Stephen Brackett
The creative minds that brought you The Last Queen of Canaan (NWN 2014, NAMT 2015) now offer The Coup, a new musical which brings terrifying possibilities before our eyes and ears. When he was young, Gabriel dreamt of a revolution that would turn his post-climate change wasteland into a thriving utopia. But Gabriel’s rise to power failed to bring change and now it’s his blood that the people want. A lush rock fable about the disconnects in our political system, The Coup features the largest cast seen at New Works Now and includes live music. Made possible by the generous support of the Pussycat Foundation’s BOLD Women’s Leadership grant and Northern Stage’s donors.
Run time: Approximately 2 hours, including one 15 minute intermission.Visit Event Website for More Info
