Seating chart & directions
Visionary and flamboyant editor George Davis transforms a dilapidated Brooklyn boardinghouse into a bohemian commune for these leading lights of 1940s New York. The residents of 7 Middagh Street create a tumultuous and remarkable makeshift family, and search for love, inspiration, and refuge from the looming war in Europe. Inspired by true events, this powerful and funny new musical marks the first commission of The Public's Musical Theater Initiative. The exciting score, written by up-and-coming composer Gabriel Kahane, mixes elements of classical operetta, jazz, and musical comedy with modern folk-pop.
World Premiere Production FEBRUARY HOUSE, music and lyrics by Gabriel Kahane
Book by Seth Bockley, directed by Davis McCallum, in association with Long Wharf Theatre.
Gabriel Kahane has confected nearly two dozen exquisite songs to tell the story of a ragtag Brooklyn Heights town house that once served—ever so fleetingly—as a kind of all-star artists’ commune. Along with Seth Bockley, who fashioned the equally compelling ‘February House’ book, Mr. Kahane, it seems clear, will be one of the artists nudging musical theater in new directions in the 21st Century.”
