About this show

Lover, Beloved is written and performed by Suzanne Vega and includes songs by Vega and Tony Award-winner Duncan Sheik. It held a special preview at last year's Alley All New Festival and a workshop performance in 2016. Lover, Beloved pays homage to renowned Southern writer Carson McCullers (The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter and The Member of the Wedding) in this new play with music about the outspoken, perceptive, and wild dreamer who became one of the brightest literary lights of the 20th century. The songs, coauthored by Duncan Sheik (Tony Award for Spring Awakening), richly capture McCullers's instinctively rebellious nature and forward-thinking philosophies on race, gender, and love.
