Running Time:90 minutes, no intermission
“A propulsive, haunting burst of musical-theater energy.”— Sara Holdren, New York Magazine, June 27, 2019
Commissioned by LCT3, IN THE GREEN tells the origin story of one of Medieval history's most powerful and creative women: Hildegard von Bingen. Before she became a healer, a composer, an exorcist, and finally a saint, she was a little girl locked in a cell with her mentor, Jutta.
This new musical by Grace McLean is the tale of two women and the journey that leads one to embrace death, and the other to celebrate the beauty and blemishes of a fully lived life.
