Gregor Samsa awoke one morning to find that he'd caught the musical theatre bug! Kafka's mystifying and mesmerizing novella comes to hilarious and haunting musical life onstage. Gregor's rude awakening and metamorphosis parallels the journey of our dauntless narrator, Franz Kafka, incorporating some of his other surreal and iconic works, including his infamous "Letter to His Father."  As Gregor/Franz approach their inevitable conclusions, we explore with poignancy, humor, and music the ridiculous and heartbreaking realities of family and tolerance. Telling this frustratingly fascinating story with puppets, shadow-play, black light, ersatz literary scholarship, and a dizzying array of low-tech theatrical conventions, Kafka's Metamorphosis is the surreal and satisfying musical adaptation you never knew you always wanted! Kafka's Metamorphosis: The Musical! Features book, music and lyrics by Matt Chiorini and additional music and lyrics by Travis Newton. The world premiere recording features Jack Rento, Morgan Smith, Carleena Manzi and Matt Chiorini.
