Written & Composed by Nate Weida | Directed by Andrew Neisler
presented in association with Judson Arts

October 26 – November 16, 2013
The Gym at Judson, 243 Thompson St., NYC

In the distant future nature has reclaimed New York City. Humans are scarce, but those who remain have survived by banding together. Packs have created their own languages, families, and religions. But one has lost something unifying, something defining, something beautiful.

Byuioo is a joyful and haunting new folk gospel musical presented in an entirely made-up language. Join us this fall and help the pack recover what they’ve lost.

 

“…I loved every semi-nonsensical minute…The music itself was wonderful and would easily stand against just about anything appearing in Times Square right now…A truly enjoyable nightI may want to see it again.” – Marti Sichel, Woman Around Town

one-of-a-kind…this musical gushes with palpable emotion…BYUIOO is brought to life by  an animated cast, along with vibrant, eclectic, folk gospel tunes.” – Kristin Tablang, Maxamoo

“An energetic and imaginative tale inhabited by a gung-ho cast of uninhibited performers.” – Joel Benjamin, Theater Pizzazz

“BYUIOO is an innovative, ambitious musical…[and] proves…the power of music and actions on stage are enough to engage and to transport us.” – Angel Lam, Theatre is Easy

“BYUIOO is a truly unique musical experience…Featuring a rousing score and lyrics by Nate Weida…and brilliant direction from Andrew Neisler, BYUIOO shows a theatre company at the top of its game…The entire cast is remarkable…” – Jose Solis, StageBuddy

A compelling and most unusual musical…Wish I knew their word for ‘Bravo!’” – Howard Miller, Talkin Broadway
