Three-time Tony Award–nominee Dave Malloy (Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812) begins his residency as Signature’s first musical theatre writer with the world premiere musical Octet, directed by Annie Tippe (Ghost Quartet). Featuring a score for an a cappella chamber choir and an original libretto inspired by internet comment boards, scientific debates, religious texts, and Sufi poetry, Octet explores addiction and nihilism within the messy context of 21st century technology. Artistic director Paige Evans moderates a discussion with Malloy and Tippe, with cast members performing highlights prior to the premiere.
