Note from the creative team:
We hope you enjoy this recording of the original cast and production of GHOST QUARTET in this theater-starved time! The direction and design you see represent the original director and designer’s vision, so should you license the piece to perform, we invite you to get creative and come up with your own version; it would excite us very much to see wildly different takes on the piece. Thank you!
