‘Bulgaria! Revolt!’ — a new musical is staged by School of Drama students
Can one small person or nation change the great tide of history? That question is explored in the Yale School of Drama’s next production, “Bulgaria! Revolt!”
From a Bulgarian village on the eve of revolution to the fantastical capitalist paradise of America, a condemned poet travels through time and space in this tragicomic new musical inspired by Geo Milev’s epic poem, “September.” Performances run Dec. 9-15 at the Iseman Theater, 1156 Chapel St.
“Bulgaria! Revolt!” was created by Elizabeth Dinkova and Miranda Rose Hall, with book and lyrics by Hall and music by Michael Costagliola. Dinkova will direct the production.
The cast includes Ben Anderson, Sebastian Arboleda, Marié Botha, Juliana Canfield, Anna Crivelli, Leland Fowler, Dylan Frederick, Jonathan Higginbotham, Courtney Jamison, Stephanie Machado, Patrick Madden, and Elizabeth Stahlmann.
The production features choreography by Christian Probst, scenic design by Emona Stoykova, costume design by Sarah Neitfeld, lighting design by Krista Smith, dramaturgy by Maria Inês Marques, technical direction by Kelly Pursley, music direction by Scott Feiner, and stage management by Shelby North.
Performances are at 8 p.m. each night (except Sunday). Tickets are $15-$25 and are available on the School of Drama website, by phone at 203-432-1234, and in person at the box office, 1120 Chapel St. (at York Street).
