A concert adaptation of the new musical Snow Child, which received its world premiere at Arena Stage in spring 2018, will be presented November 17 at 8 PM at SubCulture.
The show features a score by Georgia Stitt (music and lyrics) and Bob Banghart (music), a book by John Strand, and orchestrations by Lynne Shankel. The actors will be accompanied by Hilary Hawke on banjo, Andie Springer on violin, Wayne Fugate on mandolin, Andrew Zinsmeister on guitar, Jim Donica on bass, and Shankel on piano.
Based on Eowyn Ivey’s debut novel, Snow Child is set in the Alaskan wilderness in 1920. Reeling from the loss of an unborn child, Mabel and Jack struggle to rebuild their lives even as the fissures between them continue to widen. But everything changes when they are visited by a wild, mysterious girl who embodies the dark woods that surround their cabin.
Snow Child was co-commissioned by Molly Smith at Arena Stage in Washington, D.C., and Art Rotch at Perseverance Theater in Juneau, Alaska.
Tickets are $40 for general admission and are available at SubCultureNewYork.com or by calling (212) 533-5470.
