ALLERLEIRAUH - Musical Theater, 2023
A compassionate and witty take on the classic Grimm fairytale, Allerleirauh is the story of a genius architect who is forced to flee her homeland to protect her blind daughter. Disguised as beggars, they find work in the kitchens of a neighboring castle. With the help of a grumpy cook, a vegetarian king and an outrageous cast of characters, The Builder finds within herself the strength to face the cost of her mistakes and become the mother and queen she was always meant to be.
With a book by Angela Masi and score by Dillon Feldman (Sirens), Allerleirauh is a musical celebration of motherhood, chosen family and the pursuit of an impossible dream. The cast of diverse ethnicities, gender identities and abilities, led by director Catriona Stevens, with projection design and artwork by Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger, weaves together an inspiring picture of what we can be for one another.
