When Greek myths, elevator cars, and hating your day job collide, you might get a musical like String, the Richard Rodgers Award-winning show by Adam Gwon (Ordinary Days, The Boy Detective Fails) and Sarah Hammond (Barefoot Persephone).
String is a modern-day twist on the story of the Three Fates, who spin, measure, and snip the string of our lives. In this new show from Gwon and Hammond, the three Fates find themselves stranded on Earth, stuck in an office building, and not so different from the workaholic mortals around them — except that for the Fates, juggling their jobs and an unexpected office romance might literally mean the end of the world.
Join us for a celebration of the songs from String, as well as a glimpse into the making of a new musical with cut songs, alternate plotlines, and lost characters, sung by our favorite stars from Broadway.
Adam Gwon is a rising musical theater writer, named one of “50 to Watch” by The Dramatist magazine. His work has been heard around the globe, from Carnegie Hall to the West End. Sarah Hammond is currently a resident artist at Ars Nova Uncharted and has been the recipient of the New Dramatists residency, the Lippmann Family “New Frontier” Award, Actors Theatre of Louisville’s Heideman Award, and commissions from South Coast Repertory and Broadway Across America.
