Theatre Elision Presents:

Dave Malloy's Ghost Quartet

Ghost Quartet is a song cycle about love, death and whiskey from Dave Malloy, the Tony-nominated creator of the Broadway hit “Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812.”  A camera breaks and four friends drink in an interwoven tale spanning seven centuries, with a murderous sister, a treehouse astronomer, a bear, a subway, and the ghost of Thelonious Monk.  The story draws from several fairy tales and "ghost stories", including Snow White and Rose Red, Edgar Allen Poe's Fall of the House of Usher, and One Thousand and One Nights (commonly known as Arabian Nights). Cast members present the story and music as a "concept album" and accompany themselves on keyboard, ukulele, guitar, mandolin, banjo, autoharp, dulcimer and 9,000 percussion instruments.

Parking information:  Elision Playhouse has a free adjacent parking lot.  If that is full, there is also street parking along Brunswick Avenue (east of the building) behind the back entrance of our parking lot. PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN ANY OF THE RED SHADED AREAS. The small lot as you enter is reserved for Keng's Restaurant.  There is NO parking between 42nd Avenue and our back driveway, but it is fine to park beyond that. The Brunswick United Methodist Church has also graciously offered the use of their parking lot behind the church for overflow parking. Other nearby street parking is also available. Thanks to Terrence Joyce for the great map below!
