Works & Process, the performing arts series at the Guggenheim,presents Signature Theatre: Octet by Dave Malloy, with Paige Evans and Annie Tippe on Sunday, March 3, 2019 at 7:30pm.


Three-time Tony Award-nominee Dave Malloy (Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812) begins his residency as Signature's first musical theatre writer with the world premiere of Octet, a musical directed by Annie Tippe (Ghost Quartet). Featuring a score for an a cappella chamber choir and an original libretto inspired by internet comment boards, scientific debates, religious texts, and Sufi poetry, Octet explores addiction and nihilism within the messy context of 21st century technology. Artistic director Paige Evans moderates a discussion with Malloy and Tippe, with cast members performing highlights prior to the premiere.


Leadership support for this Works & Process program provided by Nina Matis.

Works & Process at the Guggenheim 
Described by The New York Times as "an exceptional opportunity to understand something of the creative process," for over 34 years and in over 500 productions, New Yorkers have been able to see, hear, and meet the most acclaimed artists in the world, in an intimate setting unlike any other. Works & Process, the performing arts series at the Guggenheim, has championed new works and offered audiences unprecedented access to generations of leading creators and performers. Most performances take place in the Guggenheim's intimate Frank Lloyd Wright-designed 285-seat Peter B. Lewis Theater. In 2017, Works & Process established a new residency and commissioning program, inviting artists to create new works, made in and for the iconic Guggenheim rotunda.
