Original Off-Broadway Version (2013)
A steamy exploration of the complications of love, the compromises we make and the betrayals that undo us.
A downtown and off-broadway sensation, Murder Ballad was the must see theatre experience of 2013. Conceived by Jonathan Larson Award winner and two-time Susan Smith Blackburn Prize finalist Julia Jordan with book and lyrics by Jordan and music and lyrics by indie rock singer/songwriter Juliana Nash, Murder Ballad is a steamy and fun thriller with a razor's edge.
Murder Ballad is the dramatic story of a love triangle gone wrong centering on Sara, an uptown girl who seems to have it all, but whose downtown past lingers enticingly and dangerously in front of her.
Originally performed in a bar with the audience immersed in the action, Murder Ballad is a perfect opportunity for theatre companies who produce their shows in unique environments, but would also fit perfectly into a more conventional theatre.
