A NEO Developmental Reading

Friday May 3 at 3pm


Book and lyrics by Jason Grote

Music by Marisa Michelson

Music direction by Ian Axness
Directed by
Seth Bockley

A deconstruction of The Arabian Nights, "Scheherazade" retells the famous stories of Scheherazade through a decidedly 21st-century lens.  Tales of Alaeddin and Sindbad quickly give way to the stories of Borges and Flaubert, and the storytellers are consumed by the story as a traditional Orientalist fantasia turns into a modern-day love story of a Palestinian and a Jew in a post-9/11 New York.  An adaptation of Jason Grote's award-winning play 1001 with original songs by Marisa Michelson.
