Capitalism: The Musical
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.
