Fora the Musical
October 28th @ 7:30pm doors open at 7pm
This review performance is the first performance open to the public, and will feature select songs from the musical.
FORA is the forgotten language of the island nation of Forafu and its story is told in this brand new musical. Infused with heartfelt tunes and catchy rhythms, this vibrant tale of a soulful people, rich in ancestry and lost magic from another time encompasses love, family, history and country. We meet Forafu in the time of its Great Migration. The island is losing its citizens and traditions to the harsh realities of a changing world. Told through the eyes of 17-year old Gigi, the fate of a nation rests on the choice between unraveling the mysteries of the past or succumbing to the struggles of the present. FORA has been developed at the New York Musical Festival, the Barn Arts Collective, the Dramatists Guild and the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center.
