Dark Carols: A Christmas Cycle (World Premiere)
Philip Littell has written a lot of words that have been set to music, collaborating with a veritable roll-call of classical composers: Previn, Susa, Kernis, Torke... the list goes on. Meanwhile he has been producing work for the less legitimate musical theater with collaborator Eliot Douglass ("No Miracle: A Consolation", "The Night Market", "The Wandering Whore"), and Libby Larsen ("Billy The Kid And What He Did"), has translated Moliere and Feydeau, and clowned in cabaret and sung in clubs, while continuing to work as an actor. He has two epic/historical travesty plays in hand and ready to go.
