New Projects

"we are destroyed" gets a new look at New York Theater Workshop

"we are destroyed," Howard's music theater piece inspired by the Donner Party tragedy of 1846, has been selected for a new showing at NEW YORK THEATER WORKSHOP's "Monday@3" series in April.

Though the new workshop showing is not open to the public, it represents a new step forward for the project, which has been seen in previous iterations (and in various stages of development) as a concert, an oratorio, and a play with music.

Directed by Robert Ross Parker and featuring Ryan McCarthy, Matt Citron, Colleen Werthmann & Jamie Ann Romero, THE CALAMITY takes place as a deadly plague sweeps across the country, spawning an epidemic of paranoia and fear. When one small town shuts its doors to the outside world, its residents realize that the cost of survival may be higher than they thought. Will they trade their freedoms, their loyalties to one another, and their dignity to survive?
