Description

In 1999, Lamb’s Players produced the premiere of Tim Slover’s historical backstage drama Joyful Noise, about the surprising story behind the creation of one of the greatest works of all time, Handel’s Messiah. The result was a runaway hit that traveled to New York for an extended run Off-Broadway and productions at other theatres around the nation.

Now for the first time in a decade, Lamb’s Players is pleased to return to this witty, compelling look at the story behind one of the world’s most beloved pieces of sacred music — whose journey to the stage was anything but sacred. Both George Fredrick Handel and singer Susannah Cibber are at the low point of their careers when a new libretto arrives unexpectedly on the composer’s doorstep. Politics, piety, envy, scandal, and oversized egos collide and combust in this mesmerizing true story of heavenly art – and the very flawed humans who created it.
