Autumn Songs: A Musical
The moving story of two sisters in Depression-era South Carolina, one dreaming of fame and the other longing to settle down. Conceived of by Alex Hare (Director), Autumn Songs is told entirely through song and draws on contemporary musicals including Side Show, Floyd Collins, Violet, Grey Gardens, and The Spitfire Grill. The show explores the complicated relationship between young people and their hometowns, marked by both emotional attachment and a desire to escape.
Autumn Songs played November 30 and December 2, 2011 in Roone Arledge Auditorium.
