“Babette’s Feast” coming to New York

The production that began at Portland Stage in January is coming to New York for an open-ended run at St. Clement’s Theater, starting March 14th, with opening night set for March 25th. Based on the Isak Dinesen short story, conceived by Abigail Killeen, and written by Rose Courtney, the play is “the story of Babette, a French refugee, who finds asylum in a pious Norwegian village. With boundless generosity, she throws a lavish feast that becomes an agent of transformative grace.” Directed by Karin Coonrod,and designed by Chris Akerlind, two of my long-time collaborators, I was delighted to be able to provide the music and sound textures for this beautiful work.
