Written by Outré’s resident musical director Kristen Long, The Journey is a brand-new musical that Outré is proud to present as a concert production for the very first time.
Set in a modern New Orleans, a place full of magic and dreams, a group of street performers appear, led by a mysterious bum – a magician of sorts. Through his street wise insight and a little voodoo, he begins telling the stories of five individuals, connected to one another by fate.
As the eclectic sounds of New Orleans frame their lives, each character chooses their own path that will either work toward their benefit or… their destruction. Relationships are tested as obstacles grow harder to overcome and identities are lost.
Even when surrounded by the state of the nation and the dark world of unemployment, homelessness, abuse, prostitution, and drugs there is a message that shines through: Fate is only a matter of the choices we make. Life is only a journey…where you go is up to you.
The Journey plays January 17-19, 2014, with performances Friday and Saturday at 8 pm and Sunday at 7 pm.
