2012 Ovation Award for
Best Score for an Original Musical
2012 Ovation Nominations for
Best Choreography, Best Sound Design, Best Score for an Original Musical, Best Book for an Original Musical
Embracing physical storytelling, dance and, yes, the potential of Los Angeles public transit, STATIONS juggles the struggle of a new family with the stories of an overworked Santa, an unappreciated pastry chef, a basketball hotshot and other characters racing to keep up in the sprawling city.
The original acoustic and electronic score combines dramatic scoring, sonic textures, and re-interpretations of holiday classics, and features numbers recorded by the a cappella group Sonos from NBC’s The Sing-Off.
STATIONS celebrates the shared humanity of people in crisis during the holidays.
