THE SCREAMS OF KITTY GENOVESE
A Thrilling New Rock Opera by
David Simpatico and Will Todd

New York City, 1964: Kitty Genovese is brutally attacked on the steps of her apartment building while thirty-eight of her neighbors watch and/or listen – yet no one helps, no one calls the police. Inspired by the true story that shocked the nation, British composer Will Todd and American writer David Simpatico slice through the silence of a city stricken with fear in the musical drama The Screams of Kitty Genovese. The New York Times says, “hold the hand-wringing over the precipitous decline of the American musical theater, please.” Keep your eyes and ears open – The Screams of Kitty Genovese will have you on the edge of your seat.

This is the demo recording we cut in Edinburgh in 2010 at the Fringe Festival; David Edwards directed the production, which featured Sarah Applewood, Darren Charles, Steve Devereaux, Ben Dunwell, Robert Irons, Waylon Jacobs, Claire Platt, Jessica Ridley, Caroline Sabiston, Susie Self, Bradley White-Dale, Sophie Tehrani. The production was produced by Staci Levine and Michael Nassar.
