For the next four weeks, Northwestern University will be debuting the new musical Not Wanted on the Voyage, written by Neil Bartram and Brian Hill, who were responsible for the warmly received yet incredibly short lived The Story of my Life.
According to press notes, the show is a “provocative new musical about an ordinary family faced with extraordinary circumstances. Secrets lie just beneath the surface in this darkly funny, modern re-imagining of the Great Flood — the first time the world ended.”
It features a student cast and a creative team of Tony-Winning talents, including set designer Eugene Lee (Wicked), choreographer Maija Garcia (associate choreographer for Fela!) and orchestrator Christopher Jahnke (Memphis).
And the video preview looks quite promising:
Unfortunately, I don’t think I’ll be able to make it due to my hectic schedule as of late, but you should. Not Wanted on the Voyage runs July 16 – August 8 in the Ethel M. Barber Theatre at Northwestern University. More information here >
