Commissioned in 2011 for the Pasadena Musical Theatre Program and premiered as part of the Los Angeles Festival of New Musicals, Ryan Scott Oliver and Hunter Foster's Jasper in Deadland plays the Church of St. Paul and St. Andrew in its Off-Broadway premiere. With a score by Oliver and a book by Oliver and Foster, the musical — loosely based on the Greek tale of Orpheus and Eurydice — charts the journey of 17-year-old Jasper (Matt Doyle) as he descends into the underworld to find his best friend and comes upon the otherworldly Gretchen (Allison Scagliotti). Brandon Ivie directs the production, which runs through April 13. Read the interview with Doyle and Scagliotti.
