SNOW CHILD concert at SubCulture, NYC
November 17, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm$40
Alaska Territory, the 1920s. Jack and Mabel, a childless couple in their early 40s, have fled their native Pennsylvania after the loss of their newborn child. They managed to get through their first Alaska winter as homesteaders, but their faltering marriage may not survive a second. When Mabel encounters a mysterious young girl who travels through the forest with a fox, she wants to believe it is the snowman she made, come to life. Jack refuses to believe her – until the girl appears to him, too. Is the child real, or a spirit of the dark winter woods around them? The presence of the child restores and transforms them all – until, with the arrival of spring, Mabel has to face the prospect of losing a child for the second time. SNOW CHILD is a musical about discovering love in unexpected places, overcoming loss, and trusting in the miraculous resilience of the human spirit.
Presented in concert with Lynne Shankel’s original orchestrations.
