A new immersive and intimate production of LA CASA AZUL, The Musical will debut at The Phoenix Theatre Cultural Centre, Indianapolis this July 11-28, 2019. LA CASA AZUL, an award winning musical, is inspired by the intense and turbulent life of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. With original music, lyrics and choreography by Gregory Glade and lyrics by Kate Ayers, LA CASA AZUL is performed by a talented cast from national and local platforms.
About the show
LA CASA AZUL is a completely sung-through musical and is presented with a unique fusion of musical theatre, opera, and dance. These diverse artistic components help bring drama and intensity to the story. “Everything is important to this production and they all have to work together – the story, the music, the characters, the costumes, the sets, the lighting,” says Gregory Glade. “So many elements have the potential to inspire the audience members,” he adds. The main character Frida Kahlo, played by a professional Latina New York City based actress/singer Val Nuccio, will have a prominent and powerful voice throughout the performance. Supporting characters include Diego Rivera, play by JL Rey of New York City, Cristina Kahlo, played by Alyssa Lopez of San Antonio, Texas, Guillermo Kahlo, played by Bill Book of Indianapolis, and Alejandro Gomez Arias, played by Jonathan Contreras of El Paso, Texas all of whom have intertwining and influential relationships with Frida throughout her life. The storyteller is the character of Death, played by Abigail Lessaris of Indianapolis. Uniquely, this character’s voice is only heard through dancing and movement. The set is creatively designed to reflect an artist’s rendition of Frida’s image in fragments. The costumes enhance the personalities of each character and create authenticity to the time period.
