a musical to die for.
Ghost Quartet is a show about love, death and whiskey.
A camera breaks and four friends drink in four interwoven narratives spanning seven centuries: a warped fairy tale about two sisters, a treehouse astronomer and a lazy evil bear; a retelling of Edgar Allan Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher; a purgatorial intermezzo about Scheherazade and the ghost of Thelonious Monk; and a contemporary fable about a subway murder.
Inspired by source material as diverse as Arabian Nights and the television series The Twilight Zone, you won’t want to miss this spirited modern musical where nothing is as it seems.
