Some shows take place in New York. Some shows take place in a fantasy land. Some shows, like Revolution in the Elbow of Ragnar Agnarsson Furniture Painter, take place in a body part. The world premiere of the new musical, which stars Tony winner Cady Huffman and Broadway fave Kate Shindle, opens officially on August 13 at off-Broadway’s Minetta Lane Theatre. The show features a book, music and lyrics by Ívar Páll Jónsson.
Directed by Bergur Ingólfsson and based on a story by Ívar and Gunnlaugur Jónsson, the emotionally charged rock love story explores a love triangle set in Elbowville, a small community within Ragnar Agnarsson’s body. Elbowville mayor Manuela (Huffman) must deal with a crisis when a “prosperity machine” compromises the peace of the sweet little community.
In addition to Huffman and Shindle, the tuner features Michael Biren, Patrick Boll, Zach Cossman, Karli Dinardo, Rick Faugno, Danielle Kelsey, Graydon Long, Brad Nacht, Marrick Smith and Jesse Wildman.
