“Beautiful and Absorbing!
The most original and topical musical of the year.”
- The New York Times -
“A Splendidly New Musical."
- Time Out New York -
Exactly what theatre is for.”
- The New Yorker -
From three-time Tony Award® nominee Dave Malloy and 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 twenty-first century technology. The New York Times calls Octet “the most original and topical musical of the year… a sublime a cappella portrait in song of perhaps the greatest David and Goliath struggle of our time.” Octet is directed by Annie Tippe.
