Kurt Vonnegut’s “Mother Night”
59E59 THEATER B
CUSTOM MADE THEATRE COMPANY
A tale of duplicitous spies, bumbling white supremacists, and an anti-hero that served "evil too well and good too secretly." In true Vonnegut fashion, Mother Night pieces together the story of Howard W. Campbell, an American-born Nazi propagandist and double agent, and expertly fills in the jigsaw puzzle of a life that mirrors the great events of the last century, and ones we are living with today.
This piece required a collection of classical themes, as well as ample sound effects design, and several instances that required score and sound effects to be used concurrently in a musical fashion.
”Original musical music by Julian Evans… is haunting, changing effectively with the sudden twists.” - Elizabeth Ahlfors, CurtainUp
”Composer Julian Evans’ original music suitably accompanies the actions and scene transitions while his sound design renders it and the effects with skill.” - Darryl Reilly, TheaterScene.net
