Theater Oobleck‘s new show, The Hunchback Variations Opera, opens tonight at the Victory Gardens Biograph Theater. I haven’t seen it yet, but from all indications it’s outstanding. The libretto’s by brilliant playwright Mickle Maher, and music by the lovely and talented Mark Messing, bandleader of Mucca Pazza and one of the geniuses behind Opera-Matic (he’s second from the left in this photo). Info about tickets, etc here. I shot promo photos for the show, here are a couple.
