Join Kate Douglas and Shayfer James for the debut performance of songs from their new musical,
"The Ninth Hour" at Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2
196 Allen St. NYC
Tuesday, July 19th at 8pm.
No cover charge.
The Ninth Hour centers on one of the oldest tales of good versus evil - Beowulf and Grendel - in a modern, intimate retelling featuring a rock/pop score infused with theatrical folk story-telling. The piece explores how heroes and villains are made and unmade and how evil deeds are often done by those who truly believe they are on the right side of history. Through reimagined, classic archetypes The Ninth Hour asks, if "light" and "dark" are opposites, or different expressions of personal conviction, belief, and perspective.
