Original Score by Curtis Moore

Directed by Barry Edelstein

In my third collaboration with artistic director Barry Edelstein, I composed the score for this groundbreaking production using a combination of live musicians and recorded drum tracks.  I worked to enliven Barry's vision of a 21st Century reimagining of a Jacobean world by combining elements of gypsy punk, electronica and hip hop to create a world fusion sound to match the production's incredibly vibrant costumes (Cait O’Connor), evocative set (Tim Mackabee), and world-class acting company.

Curtis Moore’s distinctive original music ... is full of funky, horn-inflected delights
