This off-Broadway manufacturing follows the smash success of Weightless on display screen, which was reconceived for movie and livestreamed by WP in 2021. That includes the propulsive and intimate musical storytelling of Bay Space indie rock band The Kilbanes – headlined by married songwriting and performing duo Kate Kilbane and Dan Moses – the manufacturing is directed by Tamilla Woodward (Assoc., Hadestown; WP’s The place We Stand), and choreographed by nicHi Douglas (Assoc., Lady From The North Nation). Opening Night time will happen on September 29, 2022.
Sisterhood. Love. Vengeance. Flight. Impressed by a story from Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Weightless tells the story of two deeply devoted sisters, Procne and Philomela. Separated by circumstance, they need to journey throughout worlds-facing devastating sacrifice and divine intervention-in order to reunite. The Kilbanes’ Weightless is a theatrical idea album pushed by a deeply transferring narrative, which weaves historical fantasy with indie rock; the band and the forged are one and the identical, blurring the road between actors and musicians, in addition to between musical theater and rock live performance.
Starring alongside Kilbane (Procne/Bass) and Moses (Keyboards/Refrain) within the Off-Broadway stage premiere of Weightless are Lila Blue (Philomela), Kofy Brown (Iris/Percussion), Dan Harris (Percussion), and Joshua Pollock (Tereus/Guitar), all of whom reprise their roles from the 2021 movie model. Set Design is by Peiyi Wong (Broadbend, Arkansas), Costume Design is by Dina El-Aziz (The Vagrant Trilogy), Lighting Design is by Stacey Derosier (sandblasted, Fats Ham), Sound Design is by Joanna Lynn Staub (Hatef*ck; Assoc.: Angels in America), and Projection Design is by Johnny Moreno (For All The Girls Who Thought They Have been Mad, Paper Piece).
