Award-winning songwriters, Chris Miller and Nathan Tysen’s Fugitive Songs is a 19-song journey across America. This innovative show, conceived as half-musical/half-hootenanny, spotlights people on the run: a disgruntled Subway sandwich employee, a jilted ex-cheerleader, a pair of Patty Hearst fanatics, a stoner forced to rob a convenience store against his will and so many others. Blending traditional folk music with contemporary pop and gospel, Fugitive Songs offers a new sound for a restless America. This eclectic score delivers poignant and thought-provoking stories that capture each character’s “reasons to run.”
There will be two ways to view Fugitive Songs. On Thursday, January 7 attend a special, interactive premiere event co-presented with Broadway Unlocked. This premiere event will be hosted by Nathan Shelton and we will be joined by friends and theatre-makers from around the country, including the show’s writers, to launch the run of this exciting production. Patrons will join us in Broadway Unlocked’s virtual theatre venue, All Together Now. There will be special pre-show activities and discussions; the ability to engage with fellow audience members before, during and after the show; and following the show, you can hop into one of our mezzanine rooms to chat with members of the cast and creative team. It brings the entire experience of attending live theatre to the comfort and safety of your own home.
​The following three evenings, patrons can join us for a straight forward live stream of the production Fugitive Songs.
Note: for this production, the show streams nightly at 7:00pm. This production is not available on-demand to be streamed at any time, patrons must view it at the designated show time.
