If you Dream of
If you Dream of
If you know these
aren't the same thing…
are you ready?
An electrifying new musical, VENICE will ignite
the stage with a fusion of musical styles from hip-hop and rock to soaring
anthems of love and hope, tracing a young man's rise as he fights for what's
right against a backdrop of deceit and sibling betrayal. Part epic
romance, part political tale, VENICE will transport you to a fallen city in the
not-so-distant future where revolution is in the air, political structures are
crumbling, and only the children of the city's fallen heroes can change the
course of history.

VENICE will be presented as part of the 2012-2013 Public Lab Season.
