DEAR LUCY - a zombie folk rock opera
Where were you November 15th, 2046 when the zombie apocalypse started?
“Dear Lucy: a zombie folk-rock opera” is a night of story-in-song written by Mickey Acorn. Each song is introduced by Dr. Michaels(played by Tom Melesky) as part of his briefing to the No-Vent46 National Committee (played by the audience). The songs are sung by our nameless hero (played by Acorn) accompanied Dr. Michael’s team of scientists. (Dr. Endo) Chisuzu Tokodori: Drums, (Dr. Chiba) Naoshi Todoriki: Guitar, (Dr. Todd) Joe Moody: Bass and (Dr. Sampson) Benjamin Anderson: Keyboard.
Songs are also complemented with journal entries written by the hero to his lost-and-now-zombie girlfriend Lucy.
It is a very simple but effective fusion of theater and intimate live music venues.
It is lyrically dark and sentimental, but with a sense of humor which frees it from pretense. And if you are familiar with Acorn’s work, this show carries the same melodic intoxication as his other catchy songs.
Why are scientists briefing a secret national committee through song? You’ll have to see it to believe it.
