Royal Family Productions & Caren Tackett present Born Blue written by Caren Tackett and Directed by Anthony Rapp. This existential musical, takes place in the Atomic Bar & Chill, a Post-apocalyptic dive bar somewhere between life and death. Here, lost souls drink the blue house brew, whose purpose is not to intoxicate but to flush away one's previous life experiences and prepare them for rebirth. The House band, "Creatrix" ('God'), speaks only the language of music, which they channel through soulful front-woman 'Infinity'. Tonight, Creatrix wishes to shed light on the hideous cycles of fear and prejudice on Earth by demonstrating scenarios spanning historical periods of Witch Hysteria , Slavery, and the American Indian Movement. Advanced digital media, rich costume and make-up design, and bluesy indie-rock score saturate a rhythmic spoken word narrative, encouraging all to reawaken, reconnect, and ultimately reincarnate.
