Hostage Song returns! This time in Madison, Wisconsin. Music Theatre of Madison strives to challenge, educate and enrich by performing lesser known pieces that illustrate unique issues, ideas and subject matter.
Music and Lyrics by Kyle Jarrow. Book by Clay McLeod Chapman. Directed by Catie O'Donnell.
In an unspecified time and place, Jim and Jennifer are hostages, blindfolded and awaiting their fate. In an effort to distract themselves from their inevitable doom, they invent a life together beyond prison walls. As the reality of their demise becomes clearer, the fantasy becomes more vivid. Stunning rock music leads the story forward as the two grapple in the dark for the last bit of love they will ever know.
MTM's production will be only the fourth staging of this musical, but in New York and Chicago it has been deemed "breathtaking", "haunting" and "devastatingly poignant." HOSTAGE SONG is not to be missed, for it takes the unconventional musical, and MTM, to a whole new level.
