The Good Guys Win in the End - "Angels," the Musical
In the past week, I have been blessed to become acquainted with the creative team behind the development of the musical, "Angels." The show, which is currently being developed in workshop form at Boston Conservatory, will be presented to limited audiences the weekend of November 5-8 at the Conservatory's Zack Theater.
I sat through one of the first run-through rehearsals this week, and was blown away by the show. The music has been composed by Ken Lai and the lyrics and book jointly written by Ken Lai and Marcus Cheong. This team, who hail from Australia, have put together a thoroughly engaging story of the ageless struggle between God's angels and Lucifer and his minions. The action of the story, set amidst Roman-controlled Palestine, tells of the events in and around Bethlehem as seen through the eyes of the angels.
There are a limited number of tickets available for the upcoming workshop performances. Let me know if you are interested and I will do what I can to bring you along with me.
Watch for this show to make its appearance on Broadway in the not-too-distant future. If you are aware of any "angel investors" who would like to become involved in a show of this nature, let me know and I will put them in touch with the producers.
