Ghost Quartet

(DISCLAIMER! This is a Dave Malloy fansite. His real website is here)

A song cycle about love, death, and whiskey.
A camera breaks and four friends drink in an interwoven tale spanning seven centuries, with a murderous sister, a treehouse astronomer, a bear, a subway, and the ghost of Thelonious Monk.

There have been a LOT of productions of this show. The rights were avaliable pretty much immidiately and it's got a small but adjustable cast, little to no sets or props required, and pretty widly applicable themes. Though with Great Comet's rights now avalible and theater picking back up after the pandemic, I've been seing a lot of new productions of that one as well.

Though I think I listened to Great Comet when the Broadway album released, Ghost Quartet is the first Malloysical I got INTO.
