Musical Tupperware, From Creators of FringeNYC Hit Love Is Dead, Opens in Chicago

By New York City
The creative team behind the FringeNYC hit Love Is Dead: A NecRomantic Musical Comedy has just opened its newest show in their hometown of Chicago, Tupperware: An American Musical Fable.

Director Andrew Hobgood, playwright James Asmus, and musical director Julie Nichols, were all part of "Love," which took home an award for Outstanding Music & Lyrics at FringeNYC last year. In their new piece, they tell the story of Dolores, a young widow in 1950 longing for her independence and finds it when she discovers the joys of selling Tupperware on her cul de sac.

Tupperware, running through August 9 at Chicago's La Costa Theatre, has been produced by The New Colony where Hobgood is artistic director, Asmus is director of new works and Nichols is music director. According to the theater's website, "The New Colony strives to contribute original material to the American artistic canon, and develop a new theater going audience. Through active collaboration with emerging artists of all disciplines, The New Colony continually develops fresh perspectives and aesthetics. With the goal of exploring enticing subject matter and the common language of emotional experience, The New Colony will help cultivate the next generation of arts supporters."
