The first British revival of the cult musical
The depths of sexuality and sexual attraction are here for the asking in this musical fantasy suggested by Arthur Schnitzler’s La Ronde. As though seen through the lens of a combination time machine and bawdy, old-time kinescope, HELLO AGAIN criss-crosses beds and jumps from decade to decade, intimately examining the painful secrets that drive characters into each other’s arms and towards the bruising effects of reckless passion. With a score that saturates the mind, HELLO AGAIN has an unforgettable, dreamlike quality–and all the luxuriance of an insistent seduction.
“Mr. LaChiusa’s smart, beguilingly world-weary work was the best original musical of the season” NY Times
After receiving MTM nominations for “Best New Musical” and “Best New Book” for The Picture House and a sold-out run of their performance-art production Oedipus Renewed, Play Pen Productions presents the first British Revival of this cult musical.
Play Pen Productions is dedicated to exploring new ways in which musical theatre can break away from its stereotypes and brings musical and physical theatre together in this new work.
“This is a phenomenal achievement by cast and production team“. Broadway Baby on The Picture House.
