I’ve never been disappointed with any production I’ve seen at the wonderful Finborough Theatre and now that the pub is re-opened, make sure you catch some of the summer lineup. You can start in June with Hostage Song.
“I’ve spent the entire week watching old home movies. All of Jim’s birthday parties. Trips to Disney Land. Trips to the beach. Christmas dinners. Anniversary parties. All the way back to our prom. What I don’t have is his beheading. None of the networks will send me a copy, no matter how much I beg. Even if he is my husband – no one will let me see.”
From the Finborough “Hostage Song is a subversive, high-velocity Off-Off Broadway indie rock musical from New York artists Clay McLeod Chapman and Kyle Jarrow. In an unspecified time and place, Jim and Jennifer are hostages, blindfolded and awaiting their fate. In an effort to distract themselves from their inevitable demise, they forge a relationship while trying to let go of the images of their loved ones. As the reality of their predicament becomes clearer, the fantasy becomes more vivid. Stunning rock music propels the story forward as the two take refuge in music, memory and each other, grappling in the dark for the last bit of love they will ever know.”
