“Infamous the Musical”
is a full-length edge of your seat thriller that recounts the events leading toward Abraham Lincoln’s assassination and the subsequent manhunt that gripped the nation during the days that followed. These historical anecdotes are interwoven in the framework of the musical in beautifully crafted melodies, epic songs and strong dynamic dialogue. While we have all studied this event in school, rarely do we get an opportunity to uncover the underpinnings and motivations that were set in motion to create this horrible tragedy.
“What fascinates me most about Infamous is the duality that runs through it:
The parallelism of the characters who are torn between who they are and what they want to be remembered for. Infamous dives deep into the psyches of Abraham Lincoln, our most beloved President, and John Wilkes Booth, our most hated villain, and seeks to find the humanity in both.”
