Behind the Scenes with rock opera WEIGHTLESS, a commission conceived and written by Kate Kilbane and Dan Moses.

Directed by Becca Wolff and presented by Z Space, Encore Theatre Company, and piece by piece productions. Weightless builds on The Kilbanes’ distinct style: a genre-bending theatrical event that combines intimate storytelling with a high-energy rock show. Weightless is an adaptation of the story of Procne and Philomela found in Ovid’s Metamorphoses: two sisters bound by deep love are separated by a vengeful god and must travel across worlds to find their way back together.  In Weightless, the cast and the band are one and the same, blurring the line between actors and musicians, between straight musical theater and concert.

Behind The Scenes with A House Tour of the Infamous Porter Family Mansion with Tour Guide Weston Ludlow Londonderry

__________

About 45 brave and eager souls volunteered to be “test bodies” for our upcoming world premiere play/experience A House Tour starring Danny Scheie, written by Peter Nachtrieb and directed by Jason Eagan. For two hours on the test crowd followed Danny through a number of different “pathways" and “rooms” of a mansion, as our amazing team of designers looked on and took notes. Nobody will look at butter the same way again.
