Lauded as a must-see theatre experience of 2013 following its Off-Broadway debut, “Murder Ballad” takes audiences into the dramatic tale of a love triangle gone wrong for Sara, an uptown girl who seems to have it all but whose downtown past lingers dangerously in front of her. Conceived by Jonathan Larson Award winner and two-time Susan Smith Blackburn Prize finalist, Julia Jordan, with book and lyrics by Jordan and music and lyrics by indie rock singer/songwriter, Juliana Nash, Murder Ballad is a steamy and fun thriller with a razor’s edge.
Originally performed in a bar with the audience immersed in the action, 5th Wall seeks to recreate this musical’s original level of immersion and by performing it at local Richmond venue Club Infuzion, allowing audience members to get up close and personal with this wickedly thrilling musical that brings a heat and intensity not soon forgotten.
