Weekly Margin 2019, W22: Octet, The Prom

5/31/19: Octet
What: Dave Malloy's new a cappella musical at Signature, and it's really best if I don't spoil anything further about the content.
And? Holy crap, this was incredible. Thrilling vocals, honest and understated performances, and just an utterly brilliant execution of a concept that, in lesser hands, could have been cynical and clumsy. An astonishing evening at the theater, a truly special show that I'm so grateful I got to see. (also if they don't record me a cast album, I will cry)
