Ryan Scott Oliver and Hunter Foster’s Jasper In Deadland Set to Play Seattle

Seattle’s 5th Avenue Theatre announced today that the Ryan Scott Oliver and Hunter Foster’s new musical, Jasper In Deadland, is set to replace the previously cancelled premiere of Something Rotten! on April 30 – May 24 2015.

Jasper

Jasper in Deadland, according to 5th Avenue, “takes audiences on a mythological thrill-ride through the underworld.  As teenage Jasper faces gods and monsters in search of his best friend (and true love) Agnes, he learns to let go of the demons of daily life and embrace the music within.  With a pulsating contemporary score and vibrant roots in ancient Greek, Egyptian, Roman, and Norse legends and fables, this spine-tingling, hair-raising, heart-stirring show explores what it means to be truly alive.”

The new musical previewed at the West End Theatre in the Church of St. Paul in NYC last Spring and featured The Book of Mormon‘s Matt Doyle with Allison Scagliotti, and Ben Crawford, among others.  Casting has not been announced yet for the Seattle run.

  1. Sounds like a loser :O) Sounds like Evil Dead–The Musical we saw last month!
    Going to see Beauty and the Beast touring company– was last here 3 years ago–and then on the 9th Lion King–I still think it has one of the best first 5 minutes of any show(except A Chorus Line!)
