About the show

A New York Musical Festival alumnus: In this new tuner, drought, desperation, and a prophet’s promise of Paradise set a ragtag group of wayward souls on a Dust Bowl journey into the desert. More…

for a previous production "Vasiljevic revitalized the story of lost souls wandering in the 1936 Dust Bowl by adding a John Doyle-esque framing device which sees the actors not only playing their own instruments, but also being hyper-aware of the fact they’re playing characters...Vasiljevic allows each of his actors to emb...
