All Hallows Eve

When I was a kid, Halloween loomed larger and larger in front of me every year. I would plan for it further ahead and an excited knot would start forming as the day approached. I could hardly believe that I would be allowed to dress as some hideous creature, ring stranger’s doorbells and be given candy.

On February 16th and 17th 2018, All Hallows Eve was performed four times to audiences in the Rose Barn Theater after a two-week residency at the O’Neill Theater Center. The terrific cast was headed up by Jen Barnhart, Tyler Bunch, Haley Jenkins and Sam Gold. It played to 30 people at a time in a site-specific, audience immersive use of the space. For composer Paul Rudolph and myself, it was a career defining time watching a musical we wrote play successfully to somewhat stunned and appreciative crowds.
