New Musical: Then She Ran by Kat Cartusciello and Alex Becker
February 11, 2022
Set to an Indie, American Gothic score, Then She Ran is a modern folktale musical exploring the heroine’s journey through the eyes of three women from different generations, and a group of mystical, vagabond artists called the Bone Crew who use their music to guide lost people toward their truth. For a price, of course. In this show, secrets are the currency, music unlocks magic, and all are responsible for each other’s empowerment Then She Ran sets out to disrupt the notion of the classic hero’s journey story – man (or woman) versus the world, individual rising on a linear path toward victory – in exchange for something that felt truer to the collective experience of growth – a reckoning with the self through the mirror of our community. This show is about looking inward and letting the subconscious be our guide through fear, trauma, and life-changing moments, so that we may heal and move forward.
