Mixing Marx With Madness is a new Musicals/Operetta that mixes mythologies from different cultures such as African, Welsh, Norse, Hindu, Asian, and Middle Eastern mythology and philosophy !
Mixing Marx With Madness creates an imagery of our Gods and Goddesses living in the same "melting pot" of cultures that we live in on Earth and challenges them to follow or break their ideas of duty, classism, and love. These are not challenges our Gods and Goddesses alone face in Mixing Marx With Madness; after Blodeuwedd, Oshun, and Kali Ma are sent down to Earth to stop Zeus, Odin, and Attila the Hun from removing free will from humans, the three Goddesses face the challenge of our modern day judicial system with a twist; the small town they are in is run on corruption and judgements are made through gossip that spreads like wild fire through this small town in Idaho.
Mixing Marx With Madness will present an hour and fifteen minute portion at Dixon Place on May 4th at 7:30pm
Music Director & Accompanist
Band: Violin, Cello, Guitar, Piano
Why a large cast musical/operetta?
The age of the large cast musical is NOT dead! For the past millennium we have seen musical casts deplete from shows like OKLAHOMA (24) and 42ND ST. (50!) to 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE (9) and LITTLE WOMEN(10). Due to the difficult in funding musical casts have been downsized - disproportionately, at that. The average musical has 2 female leads with 1 female supporting role where the average musical has 2 male leads with 3 supporting male roles. With cast sizes as small as 7 we still see 2 to 3 female leads but the majority of the cast being male. This musical is not one of those cases. Mixing Marx With Madness has 6 female lead roles, each women with a different perspective and journey through life. This doesn’t mean our male population of our musical suffers at all with a total of 6 male roles available and each of its own importance to the plot and the world created. Having a musical with a large cast allows for a complete imagery of a world to be built and allows for diversity both in gender and in ethnic and cultural background.
