Mission Drift

Fri 22 Feb 2013 - Sat 2 Mar 2013

Directed by Rachel Chavkin
Written by The TEAM in collaboration with Heather Christian and Sarah Gancher
Music by Heather Christian

AUSTRALIAN EXCLUSIVE/PREMIERE

Lovers of Broadway will never forget the profound impact productions such as Hair and Rent had on our collective consciousness. Epic stories told with humour, pathos and good old rock ‘n’ roll redefined how we witnessed musical theatre.

In Mission Drift, New York darlings The TEAM (described as Gertrude Stein meets MTV), have now busted the genre once more by dissecting the American dream with sweet soul music.

Exuberant, athletic and bitingly funny, with a score that fuses Vegas glitz with Western ballads and Southern blues, Mission Drift is a wild musical voyage through the highs and lows of 400 years of history in pursuit of the soul of American Capitalism.

With an insatiable hunger and frontier spirit, desire and destruction inhabit the achingly beautiful ballads of Mission Drift, which has at its heart two love stories that come crashing together.

Contains strong language and adult themes.

Act 1 70min
Interval 20 min
Act 2 55min

Mission Drift is that rare beast, a musical in which the music is really cool – jazz, blues, gospel and a little elvis of course, all performed by a powerful cast of five with panache and soul. THE INDEPENDENT
