Langdon St. Ives: The Steampunk Musical! In Concert, by Josh Freilich and John Blaylock, feat. Krysta Rodriguez and more
July 17, 2023
It’s a new musical! Josh Freilich and John Blaylock will present songs from their new show, Langdon St. Ives: The Steampunk Musical! Based on the steampunk stories and novels of James P. Blaylock, the show follows scientist and time-travel enthusiast Langdon St. Ives as he faces the nefarious Dr. Ignacia Narbondo and her army of reanimated corpses.
Langdon St. Ives (the character) first appeared in the short story “The Ape Box Affair,” by James P. Blaylock in 1978. Since then, Blaylock has written numerous novels and short stories featuring St. Ives and other eccentric steampunk characters.
Josh Freilich and John Blaylock (James P. Blaylock’s son) began writing songs together in 2014 after meeting at the Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program at NYU Tisch. In 2015, John approached Josh with the idea of the adaptation, and they are now thrilled to be sharing this steampunky ride through Victorian London with 54 Below.
