Alastair James Murden

"...he has an impeccable sense of timing and possesses the kind of theatrical vision that is more gift than technique: the ability not only to remain unflustered by the chaos, intentional or otherwise, surrounding him, but also to draw on it to help fuel his performance." - ocweekly

Red Barn
to Mar 29

Red Barn

  • Independent Shakespeare Co. (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Alastair will be playing the lead in a new darkly comic musical by David Melville and Melissa Chalsma, entitled Red Barn. 

"If Sweeney Todd and Spring Awakening had a love child, this might be the result. Based on true events, Red Barn interweaves contemporary accounts and court transcripts with indie rock music to tell a surprising story of redemption."
