Hostage Song

By Kyle Jarrow, Clay McLeod Chapman

Directed by Catie O'Donnell

In an unspecified time and place, Jim and Jennifer are hostages, blindfolded and awaiting their fate. In an effort to distract themselves from their inevitable doom, they invent a life together beyond prison walls. As the reality of their demise becomes clearer, the fantasy becomes more vivid. Stunning rock music leads the story forward as the two grapple in the dark for the last bit of love they will ever know.

MTM's production will be only the fourth staging of this musical, which, in New York and Chicago, has been deemed "breathtaking", "haunting" and "devastatingly poignant." HOSTAGE SONG is not to be missed, for it takes the unconventional musical, and MTM, to a whole new level.
