Kafka's Metamorphosis: The Musical
This musical interweaves the stories of Gregor Samsa & Franz Kafka using a dizzying array of low-tech theatrical conventions including puppetry, shadow play, & black lights, with a quartet of actors who "...delivers in talent, sincerity and pizzazz" (Broadway World). Gregor Samsa awakens to find he's caught the musical theatre bug, Gregor's metamorphosis parallels the journey of our dauntless narrator Franz Kafka, and his fraught familial relationships. Kafka's mesmerizing novella comes to hilarious and haunting life on stage in this surreal and satisfying musical adaptation. Book, music & lyrics by Matt Chiorini; additional music & lyrics by Travis Newton.
