If you haven’t heard much from Bradley J. lately, it’s because I’ve had my head down for the last few months working, scheming, and collaborating on the first musical of the WT Theatre season–Monstersongs. This spooky song cycle by Rob Rokicki (Broadway’s The Lightning Thief) reveals the hidden life of monsters. We meet the Mummy, Medusa, the Troll under the bridge, and more–all sharing their side of the story. The music is clever and catchy, and the student talent performing these songs is next-level.
If you will recall, one year ago, WT opened The Theory of Relativity–a recorded and filmed theatrical experience geared specifically for a digital audience. We found so much value in that process that we wanted another crack at it. The production value in every aspect is higher–partly due to the ability to meet and rehearse more safely in pandemic times. I’m excited to share with you the product of months of collaboration–a musical with lots of heart and a touch of spook that truly rocks!
Monstersongs streams this weekend via video on demand through Monday, Nov. 1. Turn it on while you wait for trick-or-treaters or tune in at the witching hour.
Run time: 50 minutes
Stream available with ASL interpretation.
