Kalopsia The Musical at New Hazlett Theater (Sun., 10/17/21)

KALOPSIA THE MUSICAL by Monteze Freeland and Michael Meketa III. New Hazlett Theater Residency Program. Oct. 7 – 17. 

Byrd is a young man with high-flying fantasies and extravagant habits. He figures they make him happy, but do they also make him … well, not quite mentally healthy? And if so, how do you get to sanity without losing your you-ness? Kalopsia the Musical, with book by Monteze Freeland and music by Michael Meketa III, premiered in Pittsburgh in 2017. Now Kalopsia is back in even healthier, hip-hopping shape at the New Hazlett Theater. Tomé Cousin directs. 3 p.m. 6 Allegheny Square East, North Side. (M.V.)
