Summer 2015: MURDER BALLAD

Summer 2015

Murder Ballad

Book and Lyrics by Julia Jordan 
Music and Lyrics by  Juliana Nash 

A steamy exploration of the complications of love, the compromises we make and the betrayals that undo us.

Murder Ballad is the dramatic story of a love triangle gone wrong centering on Sara, an uptown girl who seems to have it all, but whose downtown past lingers enticingly and dangerously in front of her. The title is taken from the phrase "murder ballad," a type of song that describes the details of a crime, from the murderer to the motive to the act itself.

Conceived by Jonathan Larson Award winner and two-time Susan Smith Blackburn Prize finalist Julia Jordan with book and lyrics by Jordan and music and lyrics by indie rock singer/songwriter Juliana Nash, Murder Ballad is a steamy and fun thriller with a razor's edge. Jordan, was interested in taking her idea of a murderous love triangle and turning it into a rock musical. She approached Nash, who had never written a musical before, and was inspired by the dark narrative qualities of the music.
