One Act, Pop / Rock, Rated R
Original Off-Broadway Version
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
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
and dangerously in front of her. The musical explores the
complications of love, the compromises we make, and the betrayals that
can ultimately undo us.
Variety Magazine hailed it saying, "[it]
steams up the
room with its violent tabloid tale of illicit love, lust and
betrayal," & "Maybe you've heard this story before, but surely not
like this." 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 environment.
