Hart Island

June 7-16, 2019

@ First Stage Theatre

BUY TICKETS

Just off the shore of New York City lies a sorrowful island that serves as a public burial ground for the lonely, forgotten, or impoverished of the city. Hart Island is an inspiring and emotional tale of an immigrant woman fighting for her child, and unexpected compassion of a disillusioned inmate who is the only person who can help her. From the authors of Cloaked, this hauntingly beautiful new musical observes two people on the fringe of society as they change each other’s lives forever.

DANNY LARSEN (Composer & Co-Lyricist) and MICHELLE ELLIOTT (Bookwriter & Co-Lyricist) graduated from New York University’s Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program. Their first musical, The Yellow Wood, was awarded a Richard Rodgers Development Award and the Daryl Roth Award. In 2007, The Yellow Wood was presented in the New York Musical Theatre Festival. The show was also part of the Village Originals and the National Alliance for Musical Theatre Festival. Cloaked, their second show, received workshop productions at CAP 21 and Village Theatre, and a Jonathan Larson Grant, and Michelle was the recipient of the Kleban Prize for Most Promising Librettist for the show. Danny and Michelle wrote, filmed, and produced a seven-part musical for teens entitled The Hinterlands in response to the spate of suicides by gay youth.
