The Mortification of Fovea Munson

Performance Dates
Opening Performance

Fovea Munson is stuck working at her parents’ cadaver lab now that her summer plans have fallen through. That is, until three disembodied heads, left to thaw in the wet lab, start talking. To her. Out loud. And they need a favor. Mary Winn Heider brings her uproarious book to musical life with music and lyrics by Justin Huertas; music direction, arrangements, and orchestrations by Steven Tran; choreography by Ashleigh King; and direction by M. Graham Smith in this world premiere Kennedy Center commission.

Featuring Regina Aquino, Dylan Arredondo, Jonathan Atkinson, Michael Mainwaring, Justine ‘Icy’ Moral, Farrell Parker, and Christopher Michael Richardson.
