This was as good as any theater I've seen this year. The singers were amazing and so was the music. Every word was understandable. A truly creeative musical! I want to see it again when it's ready for regular theatergoers.

It was a workshop, and the story needs to be tightened to flow better in places, but this is gonna be a great show. The music is really engaging, and the narrator/jester was simply awesome. I can't wait to see how it develops and want to go back...continued

They did mention that this musical was still in the works. I gave it a chance. Its a good start. But I left during intermission. Still needs work.

Quotes & Highlights

“Matt Sax is a  prodigiously powerful writer…vulnerable, hip, smart and compelling.  This  is someone who understands the interconnectivity of language.” —Chicago Tribune
“The ace in the hole is  Sax, so assured as both writer and performer that he redefines charisma for a  hip new age.”_ —Variety_


Matt Sax and Eric Rosen, the team behind the hit show Clay, are back at the Douglas with their new show Venice, a hip-hop musical about betrayal and politics. This workshop production, loosely based on Shakespeare’s Othello, promises to be a high voltage musical experience.

Directed by Rosen, Venice is a hip-hop musical about betrayal and politics in a post-Apocalyptic world and is loosely based on Shakespeare’s Othello.

Post-show discussions will be held after each workshop presentation of Venice.
