The newest iteration of The Burnt Part Boys will be appear Off-Broadway in the Spring. The show was a Lab Production at the Vineyard earlier this year and was subsequently presented at Vassar College. Joe Calarco will direct the Off-Broadway production. Written by Mariana Elder (book), Nathan Tysen (lyrics) and Chris Miller (music), the show is – according to the publicity materials – ‘an unforgettable coming of age tale set to a haunting and distinctive bluegrass and pop-inspired score’. Set in West Virginia in 1962, The Burnt Part Boys tells the story of a group of teenagers whose fathers were killed ten years earlier in a tragic coal mining accident. When they learn that the mine will be reopened, they set out secretly in the hope of seeing the site and keeping it closed.
Interesting title…. Not sure about anything else.
