A brilliant reimagining of "The Little Mermaid" set in a Dust Bowl-era circus, Lyra: A Dark Fairy Tale has quickly attracted an avid fan base. Created in conjunction with Cirque du Soleil veteran artists, Lyra is a new musical written by Ashley Griffin (Forever Deadward) and Evan Jay Newman (music director of American Idiot's national tour). A cross between musical theater and a European-style circus, this exciting new work uses circus arts along with music and dance to tell Hans Christian Andersen's classic tale in a bold and exciting new way. A beautiful young girl, a tragic clown and an omnipotent magician set the stage for a tale of love and sacrifice during this concert-style production at Feinstein's/54 Below.
