Program alums present 'MEDUSA' musical at Ripley Grier Studios

Monday, Mar 13, 2023

Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program alums Wes Braver and Rachel Dean (both cycle 26) presented readings of their new musical MEDUSA at Ripley Grier Studios in March 2023. With a book, music and lyrics by Braver and Dean, the show follows the titular character and tells her story through her own eyes.

When Medusa becomes the first priestess of Athens to accuse a god of rape, it sparks a battle for the soul of the first democracy. This emotional epic asks who the real "monster" is, with a darkly catchy score fueled by rock, hip-hop, and jazz that breathes a fierce urgency into an ancient story.
