 "The quartet that makes up the show delivers in talent, sincerity and pizzazz."


 "The performers squash it with their singing and creativity."


 "Genuinely moving...run, fly or scuttle for a ticket."


"This unconventional interpretation of the Metamorphosis will strike viewers with its quirky nature and jarring humor, whilst masterfully contrasting the campy absurdism of musicals with the dark absurdism of Kafka’s work."


"If there is one show to see

this year, this is it!"

Gregor Samsa awoke one morning to find that he'd caught the musical theatre bug!  

Kafka's mystifying and mesmerizing novella comes to hilarious and haunting musical life onstage.

Gregor's rude awakening and metamorphosis parallels the journey of our dauntless narrator, Franz Kafka, incorporating some of his other works, including his infamous "Letter to His Father."  Telling this frustratingly fascinating story with puppets, shadowplay, black light, and a dizzying array of low-tech theatrical conventions, "Kafka's Metamorphosis" is the surreal and satisfying musical adaptation you never knew you always wanted!

Join us for a many - legged musical!
