Capitalism: The Musical (2017)
Deirdre Murphy's seminal work of acrobatic musical theatre, with music, lyrics and book by Deirdre Murphy, and additional music by John Linanne. The musical tells the tale of a heroic group of everyday acrobats, aided by a powerful triumvirate of fairy godmothers. Our heroes tell their stories -- who they are and why they care, while a trio of emperors breathes down their necks and strives to stay on top.
Musically ranging from catchy showstoppers, heart wrenching duets, and stirring anthemic choral pieces, the musical retains a sense of humor and a hint of irony. Spells are cast and broken, whistles are blown, and a possible future is written.
