WORLD PREMIERE | MUSIC-THEATRE

Train With No Midnight

Singer and writer Joseph Keckler and an intimate musical ensemble lead the audience through a series of vignettes, each like a stop on a late-night train. The text dances between comedy, commentary and communion with a score of smoky pop songs, propulsive invocations, and leaps into the operatic realm.
