An operetta by Lex Brown
Thursday June 20, 7PM
The Meyerhoff Auditorium
The Baltimore Museum of Art
Taking place in a medieval future and set in a trendy fast-casual bakery on a military base, this melodrama collapses large-scale political issues like national defense, border control, and AI with lifestyle branding, nuclear family, and a destabilized news cycle. Music composed by Lex Brown and Molly Joyce. Performed by Lex Brown, Sam Garrett, & Atticus Hebson.
