Bad World: A New Musical

Bad World is a new devised musical with lyrics by Kylie Jenifer Rose and Jennifer Provenza, and music by James Liptak and Kylie Jenifer Rose. The book is by Kylie Jenifer Rose, James Liptak, Jennifer Provenza, Rachael Singer, Michael Cavazos, Ashley Mellinger, Maya Maria Brown, and Zeloszelos Marchandt.

Inspired by a true story, Bad World follows the coming-of-age journey of Rose, an ambitious young woman who is sexually assaulted in Paris after completing her research project. Upon her return to the United States, she must face how her trauma affects how she lives her life, as her recovery experience becomes interwoven with those of three other survivors of sexual assault.

Bad World aspires to give a voice to the experience of survivors and by sharing, validate the onerous journey of coping with and overcoming the past. 

Keep an eye out for the album release in April and for full performance announcements (once it is safe for us to meet for live theatre).
