Tickets are now available for Manhattan Theatre Club's production of Murder Ballad, starring Caissie Levy, Tony nominee and Broadway.com Audience Choice Award winner Will Swenson, Tony nominee John Ellison Conlee and Rebecca Naomi Jones. The musical will begin previews at off-Broadway’s Union Square Theatre on May 7. Opening night is set for May 22.
Conceived by Julia Jordan, with a book and lyrics by Jordan and music and lyrics by Juliana Nash, Murder Ballad tells the story of Sara (Levy), an Upper West Sider who seems to have it all, but whose downtown past lingers enticingly and dangerously in front of her. The new rock musical explores the complications of love, the compromises we make and the betrayals that can ultimately undo us.
Directed by Trip Cullman, Murder Ballad will play a nine-week limited engagement. .
