ERNEST SHACKLETON LOVES ME is one woman’s fever dream/musical starring GrooveLily’s fierce and funny electro-violinist Valerie Vigoda and the gorgeous and hypnotic Wade McCollum (Wicked, Priscilla Queen of the Desert) with a tongue-in-cheek script by Tony award winner Joe DiPietro (Memphis). In this geeky, high-tech adventure, a sleep-deprived single mom and video game music composer is contacted across time by the famous polar explorer Ernest Shackleton. Inspired by her music, he shares his epic Antarctic journey with her in video and song. Together, they struggle toward and conquer new horizons in this cross-time love affair for the ages.
