The Adam and Eve myth is central to western culture and was created to explain suffering. But for most thinking people it amounts to victim blaming. This whimsical, family musical reimagines the myth by giving everyone a voice… even the snake. Returning to Fringe after a successful run in 2015, Songs of the Fall is repackaged as a one act musical tour de force.
LA-based composer and playwright Ben Boquist brings his tuneful, lyrically potent songs to the stage with a powerhouse cast including stars-on-the-rise Unati Mangaliso (Bleeding Heart) and Jackie Bianchi (Deadball), as well as Fringe veterans John Eddings, Todd Tin-Yu Lien and Whitney Rooks.
Set simultaneously in Modern LA and the Garden of Eden, Songs explores the jealousy, addiction and loss surrounding humanity’s first and most damning failure.
Two lost souls + three strange deities + one petty snake
= Lots to sing about
