A WORLD PREMIERE
“I could wait for you forever, If you told me what forever was for.”
A re-imagining of the story of The Odyssey from the point of view of a character often relegated to the margins of the story, Penelope is a musical love letter to all those who wait: For someone they love. For something they believe in. And hope that the wait will end well. An intimate and explosive music theater piece, Penelope invites the audience to join in a ritual act of storytelling to release the pent-up grief, anger, love and longing that are so familiar after the last three years. Penelope was developed, in part, through the Founders’ Club Residency as part of the Orchard Project (Ari Edelson, Artistic Director.)
Penelope will feature Tatiana Wechsler* as Penelope, with Christine Bokhour* serving as the Penelope understudy.
Penelope will feature costume design by Rebecca Kanach and lighting design by Oona Curley. The show will feature orchestrations and arrangements by composer Alex Bechtel. Daniel Kelly will serve as music director.
