Ghost Quartet is a haunting song cycle about love, death, and whiskey from Dave Malloy, the two-time OBIE Award-winning mind responsible for 2012’s Off-Broadway hit electropop opera, Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812.
A camera breaks and four friends drink, in four interwoven narratives spanning seven centuries: a warped fairy tale about two sisters, a treehouse astronomer and a lazy evil bear; a retelling of Edgar Allen Poe's "The Fall of the House of Usher"; a purgatorial intermezzo about Scheherazade and the ghost of Thelonious Monk; and a contemporary fable about a subway murder.
Blurring the line between theatre and contemporary music performance, the show is a theatrical presentation of an album, staged in the round, with the musicians seated among the audience.
