Vagabond Theatre Company in Hoboken, NJ
Have you heard about the new Vagabond Theatre Company in Hoboken? If not – you certainly will be hearing more about them soon.
“The eight founding members of the Vagabond Theatre Company spent five years performing for other companies in and around the Hoboken area. But now, we’ve decided to take matters into our own hands!
The Vagabond Theatre Company was born out of a need to create a stable place for us to perform and we saw the same need reflected in other artists in our community.
We were shocked to learn that among the other wonderful theatre companies in the Hoboken area, there wasn’t one that focused on musical theatre!
All actors and artists at heart, we are also lawyers, high school teachers, insurance brokers, stay at home parents, writers, dance instructors and stylists. We believe that our eclectic backgrounds paired with our love of theatre, give us a unique advantage in starting this company.
It is our hope to bring quality theatre across the river from Broadway. We want to work with our community and give back to them, not only in the form of education, but also by pairing up with local charities to enrich our town and the surrounding areas. We want to give “homeless” artists a place to hone and display their craft.”
Sound interesting? Read on to find out about their “Immersive Rock Musical” Murder Ballad next month!
Murder Ballad Rock Musical at Willie McBrides
The Musical (an exclusive premiere for New Jersey), is “A love triangle gone wrong, MURDER BALLAD centers on Sara, an Upper West Sider who seems to have it all, but whose downtown past lingers enticingly and dangerously in front of her. This sexy, explosive, new rock musical explores the complications of love, the compromises we make, and the betrayals that can ultimately undo us.”
It will take place at the large backroom space over at Willie McBride’s (616 Willow Avenue) next month.
The six performances happen at 8pm on Thursday May 7th & 14th, Friday May 8th & 15th and Saturday May 9th and 16th. You can purchase tickets directly at vagabononstage.com or over at Brown Paper Tickets. $20 per person (or upgrade to VIP Table Service for only $25).
Playbill.com also gave the new Hoboken theatre company some juice as well.
Maybe this will set the stage for more companies like this in the future – and Hoboken could have a mini theatre district?
