CHICAGO, IL – July 25, 2012. Chicago-based performance troupe Terra Mysterium announces its 2012 Chicago Fringe Festival offering, Amy Christensen's The Alembic, running August 31st through September 9th at the Dream Theatre in Pilsen.
The clockwork of fate is a tricky matter. In this Steampunk musical tale an alchemist undertakes the work of transmutation. A Goddess responds to his call. Within the realm of humanity, she forgets that she is a Goddess and will pay the ultimate price for her innocence.
Music and lyrics are written by the show's playwright, Amy Christensen, with harmonies and arrangement by Artistic Director Matthew Ellenwood. The production stars company members Keith Green, Song Marshall, Kat O'Connor, Amy Christensen as Vera, and introducing local actor Sean Wilson as Sorenson. It is directed by Matthew Ellenwood.
Tickets for the Alembic are $10, in addition to $5 admission to the Fringe Fest itself.
Terra Mysterium is a Chicago-based collective of musicians, actors, dancers, poets, magicians and performers; creating, producing and performing experiential works of music, theatre and performance art that are rooted in the Earth Mysteries. For more information, visit www.terramysterium.com.
