Smile Swamp Princess: A Rock Opera
939 Boylston Street
Boston, MA, 02115
If you can imagine your life in the shape of a mountain, then you can surely turn your heart loose at the door of this production. For the journey up, one's life-mountain is never mapped out, or fated to fit into a predisposed archetype; there is certainly no battery-operated manual to help us reach the end in an easy manner.
In the case of the Swamp Princess and her Space Cowboy, they skim slowly into love, whilst dragging mounds of swamp scum up their equally deranged mountains, concurrently expressing their tale through magical rock ballads and up-tempo rainbow-love songs.
The brainchild of Berklee alumni—composers Megan Lui and Justin Johnson, and producer/art director Molly Brolin and featuring a band of all-star rock and roll musicians and visual artists—Smile Swamp Princess conjures a glittery take on everyday swamp life.
Admission: $10 advance, $12 day of show, general admission
