New Musical! Angelmakers: Songs for Female Serial Killers by Molly Rice
August 15, 2018
Join us at Feinstein’s/54 Below for a compelling, darkly humorous & moving performance of Molly Rice’s true-crime cabaret musical Angelmakers: Songs for Female Serial Killers. Based on the premise that everyone deserves one song, Angelmakers explores the motives and moments of nine real-life serial killers in a manner audiences have called “brutal,” “thoughtful,” and “surprisingly beautiful.”
Prepare to experience a stirring new collection of songs in a variety of styles artfully befitting their subjects, including “Teeth” (a song for ten-year-old Mary Bell), “How the Devil Sings” (dedicated to Pentecostal Velma Barfield), “Michigan” (a ballad for Aileen Wuornos), and “I’m Sorry, Everybody” (for the 19th-century nurse Jane Toppan). Featuring vocalist Gelsey Bell with Viva deConcini on guitar and background vocals, this concert-play is produced and directed by Rusty Thelin of Real/Time Interventions, with lyrics and music by Molly Rice (Futurity: A Musical By the Lisps, Canary, The Saints Tour).
