Kansas City Choir Boy  

Kansas City Choir Boy

October 15 - November 8, 2015

Kansas City Choir Boy is a love song for the computer age and a product of the 24-hour news cycle that feeds on the stories of the anonymous “missing.” A theatricalized concept album about love altered by unexpected fate, the show tells the story of two lovers in small town America who separate when one goes in search of her destiny and then disappears. Borrowing themes from ancient myth, the show features songs by acclaimed composer/lyricist Todd Almond performed by rock icon Courtney Love and Mr. Almond, joined by a chorus of sirens, and a string quartet with Musical Direction by David Bloom. Following a sold-out run in New York, this new musical will have Douglas audiences thrilled by this “irresistible gem” (Billboard).
