I SING THE RISING SEA
SEPTEMBER 13 - OCTOBER 9
ODU'S GOODE THEATRE
Book, Music, & Lyrics by ERIC SCHORR
This musical by the coauthor of Frog Kiss tells a sweeping story that flows through generations and across continents—from the shores of Virginia to Japan and Antarctica. Scientists, soldiers, poets, and lovers strive to understand and master the power of the oceans that connect us all. In collaboration with ODURep, this newest installment of the American Soil Series is an original and timely work for musical theatre that captures the urgency of one of humanity's most overwhelming challenges—to survive the rising sea.
"...It’s the kind of adventure that live theater should be." - Mal Vincent, The Virginian-Pilot
