Twenty years after it took the world by storm, the first-of-its-kind silent-theatre blockbuster The Overcoat is re-fashioned into a wholly original musical experience for the 21st century. Joined by award-winning composer James Rolfe, celebrated Canadian theatre innovator Morris Panych and his original creative team return to the drafting table to re-pattern Gogol’s 19th century tale of a lowly office worker whose life is turned upside down when he’s robbed of his new overcoat. Boasting a joyously transporting score, this Overcoat is a bold symphony of voices and movement, comedy and tragedy that addresses the universal human need for compassion, and our unfortunate tendency to deny it.
