Hurricane Jimmy The Musical
New York, NY
ABOUT THE SHOW:
Set amongst an antebellum estate undergoing renovations deep within a Gulf Coast Bayou, Hurricane Jimmy is a steamy present-day musical noir, influenced by the Southern Gothic plays of Tennessee Williams and James M. Cain's Double Indemnity. We witness the tragic resurrection of entanglements between the wrong guy and a married femme fatale. Side by side, they know it will be impossible to stop themselves from an adulterous affair that will surely end in disaster. Told in stylistic detail with a deeply energetic score, Hurricane Jimmy begs us to reconcile with our pasts, while confronting our futures. Come witness the wreckage from the storm.
